Roller Coaster Temperatures

Oct. 8, 2015: Temperatures do a lot of dancing around in the month of October. This month, we’ve had a few days in the 50’s, followed by today nearly reaching 80°.

So, what’s typical for this roller coast month of temperature swings? Here’s the breakdown:


We usually have average highs in the upper 60’s to 70 early in the month, then low 60’s for the middle of the month, with the upper 50’s by the end of the month.

On average, however, we see around 7 days with highs in the 70’s, so those temperatures aren’t uncommon, plus lately we’ve average 2 days in the 80’s every October, but that is usually early in the month as we transition out of September. The upswing in the upper 70’s we’ve seen lately isn’t uncommon.

We also average 14 days with highs below 60°, so there is plenty of fall weather to be had.  Brace yourselves for this one, however: lately we’ve averaged 5 days at or below 50°.  Cold days are ahead, if this is a typical October!
