Its pretty certain now that my low here for the month will be 38, which makes it the first October in my time here going back to 2005 that I did not reach freezing.  Here are the other Octobers that I only had a low in the 30s, you'll see just how much this 38 stands out in comparison:

2005: 30

2007: 30

2010: 32

2017: 31

2018: 30

2019: 31

Only got to 39 here this morning but there was more noticeable building roof frost on the way into Goshen, still not enough to log it as the first frost. 

To be honest I'm not even sure if I should tally my first frost. 31.5F was the low (below-freezing being corroborated by other stations in the neighborhood), so unambiguously the first freeze. Even here, though, actual frost was tenuous and confined to well-insulated rooftops. Most crucially, there was no damage to tender vegetation... my petunias and impatiens are no worse for wear. Can you first freeze without first frost? If not, how do you frost without killing the impatiens?

Officially, I don't know but I lean towards no.  That said, I've experienced similar situations in the past that left me scratching my head.  The impatiens are a good telltale.

Good morning Irish. It certainly looks like Julian and a local Bee swarm will give each other an All Hallows’ Eve to remember. As always ….

The Wallkill River gauge in Middletown peaked just a hair higher than it did with Ida, will be interesting how high the river goes this weekend.

The weekend rain was lighter than forecast thankfully.  There was s light delay in the gauge dropping until yesterday.
