Yea...

ORD has been a bit of an odd-ball all summer temp wise, but it finally looks like the sensor is fully trashed now.

84 on the new hourly ob.  All is right with the world.  :sun:

Indy has broken the daily record of 89 with a high of 90 so far.

Should end up breaking that monthly record of 91 or at least tie in a worst case scenario.

Notice Aurora's temperatures today are a bit suspect as well, has stayed in the mid 70s all day so far when most surrounding sites are mid 80s.

I think something is up with the ASOS at ORD.  The temp has dropped to 73 for no apparent reason.  Can't afford to have funny stuff on a day when they are going for a monthly record!

:axe:

Looks like the morning low of 73 still held...so far, anyway.

Louisville, Lexington, and Bowling Green, KY have already set new all-time October high temperature records. Tomorrow offers a good chance to break it again.

I could be wrong but I think there is some discretion allowed.  Say if the ORD sensor acts up again later and drops to 69 or something but it's clearly illegitimate, then I don't think they have to go with that reading.  RC or one of the other mets could clarify though because again I may be misremembering how that works.

As far as the monthly record, at this point I think it's more likely than not that it gets broken, but it's not a done deal yet by any means.

95 at CVG today... beating the previous all-time monthly high by 4 degrees.  Just saw that Lexington finished Sept. with only a trace of precip.  Quite a stark contrast to the first several months of the year.

So frustrating. For the second day in a row we tied a record from 1897 with a reading of 92 degrees. Would have been nice to see a 122 year record fall. 

Breaking is better than tying, but at least you will see 2019 when you check the daily records since the most recent occurrence is listed.

Awaiting our usual Iowa sloppy seconds later tonight.

I'd take filthy 4th's around here.  Beginning to wonder if camels could be a good investment.

Hey beavis, looks like this could be close.  I forgot it actually has to make it until 1 am central since we are still on daylight savings time.  Outflow is currently just south of MKE and moving south but not necessarily racing.  It better not come through between 12 and 1 haha.

Based off what just happened at PWK on 5 min obs, appears more likely than not that ORD will fail to set the record. PWK went from ~81 at 12:05 am to ~70 at 12:10 am.

 

Edit: ORD officially failed to set the new monthly record.

Yeah, 68 on new ob.  Literally just needed another 15 minutes or so.  Unreal.

Very reminiscent of January 30th failing to set a new monthly record low max for January by 15-20 minutes.

Case in point, still 81 at Midway.
