What A Difference

Did you know the last two days at 9:30 am our temperatures were 69.4° (yesterday) and 67.3° (Thursday)? Today (Saturday) at 9:30 we are nearly 25° cooler at just 45.6° and the wind chill (feels like) has been as low as 43°.

Cloudy, dreary, and chilly. The forecasted high is 59° but we'll struggle to warm-up all day, so I don't think we'll get close to that number. Scattered showers and cool tonight with a low of 42°. Normal high/low this date is 73/50.

30% chance of showers early becoming cloudy and more dry in the afternoon with a high of 56°. A slight chance of frost overnight into Monday (if skies clear) with a low of 38°.

*Special Weather Statement*

We are already up to 2.30" of rain this month. To give you a bit of perspective, over the last 30 years October has averaged 3.23" of rainfall. This after 11.50" of rain in September, which is more than 2 and 1/2 times the normal amount of September rain.

For the year, we've overtaken the normal amount. Currently, we stand at 46.02" while the average is 42.92". This is a huge turnaround considering we were in the 9" plus deficit ranges back in July and considered to be in a drought.
