October 2019 Observations

Recommended Posts

95° in the triad now.  Temp just shot right up after 12:30 or so.  Impressive yet unfortunate.

Much cooler temps hanging back from OK to MI now.  Waiting for the kick tonight.  Saturday will be an early Christmas present and sanity saver for most here.

That is what happened to us too. Temp shot up to 94 right around 2 PM and has dropped to 93 now.

RDU just hit 100F at 207 PM EDT, further breaking the all-time October high temp record. Daily highs were also broken at GSO (94F so far) and FAY (99F so far)

This afternoon, the temperature reached 100° at Raleigh. That broke the October record of 98°, which was set on October 6, 1954. It is also the latest 100° or above temperature on record. The previous latest such temperature occurred on September 10, 2007. 2019 also becomes the first year on record when Raleigh's highest annual temperature was reached in October. Records go back to 1887.

I don't know if it's 100% accurate but it's by FAR the hottest temp I've ever recorded on my at-home thermometer in the shade behind my house but I hit 104 at 3:30 today... At least 100 at RDU it may not be crazy. Down to 98 now.

102 at MCN.

4 out of last 7 days at 100 or higher.

Personally, I have totally enjoyed the anomalous September.  It's been dry, yes, but it's been great to be outside without your clothes getting wet before you get to the car.

Couldn't disagree more, personally. Its been hot since May. I WANT COOL OR COLD! This has been a miserable stretch weather wise in my book. 

CAE  100 today. AVL 91 trying yesterday.

I would love to see a rigorous analysis of RDU temp statistics based on observation locations.  Over the last decade or so, seems like like instances of it being warmer than KFAY are becoming way more common.  I have to question the reality of that.

Amazing how hot it's been for you all north of I10.

Incredible really for late September early October. 

Going to be crappy foliage season. The leaves are probably going from green to brown.

Expecting my 3rd in a row  100 degree high temp...was 101 yesterday. I cant believe this is October... Beyond ridiculous..wildlife and trees are probably confused as hell too lol. Just letting back to normal temps will be a shock to the system. And the dust...ugh...I really really hate drought.

It's coming. The pattern is breaking and most folks across the SE will be cool(er) from now into LR. We might actually be looking at some cold air in 10 days or so; whereas we could be talking frost.

The thing I really hate about this heat wave is it took some prime weather away from us; meaning I enjoy opening windows and not having to use AC or heat. We could be looking at a year where we go, within a couple of weeks, from AC to heat.

At 12 pm, the temperature was 91° in Atlanta. That tied the daily record set in 1941 and tied in 1954 and 2018. It is also Atlanta's 91st 90° or above temperature this year. That passes the record of 90 days set in 1980 and tied in 2011.

ATL is 96 at 2pm.  That is 2 degrees higher than yesterday at this time.  Yesterday’s high was 98.  Maybe we push 100 today?

It's coming.  60s starting to creep down the spine of the Apps and general 70s filtering down thru WV, KY and NoVa.  5 hours till the sun goes down and then the party begins.
