Not done with the 80’s yet

September 15, 2016: As the days grow shorter and cooler air appears more regularly, those summer-like days start to get few and far in between. No need to fret yet; we can see the 80’s for a while into the fall! In fact, Rockford snuck up to 80° this afternoon.

last of the 80s

On average, we see our last day in the 80’s around October 2nd. Some years, like last year, the 80’s linger well into the middle of the month. In 2007, one of our latest 80 degree days was felt on October 21st!

We usually see around 10 days in the 80’s during an average September, or about 1/3 of the month; right now, we are sitting at 8 days, with a few more in the forecast.
