It’s been a while…

Oct. 10, 2016: If you stepped outside today and thought, “Wow. It feels like forever since it’s been this cold”, you weren’t that far off.

1st of fall

We haven’t had a day below 60° for a high since May. 151 days ago, in fact. That’s a solid 5 months of warm weather! Rockford got close to breaking the streak a few weeks ago, but we’ve held on until today.

With that in mind, I took a look at the next few streaks that are still alive: our last 30° and 40° days. One note: we won’t see weather this cold anytime soon! However, about a month from now, our average highs are in the upper 40’s, so it won’t be long. For now, we’ll see some warmer days.

notable streaks

Overall, it’s been at least 6 months since we’ve seen either of these days. We have to go back to March 24 and April 9, respectively, for the 30’s and 40’s. Over half the year has gone by since those chilly days, and we’ll likely not see chilly weather like that for hopefully another month. It’s neat to see how long we avoid those temperatures, however!
