Yeah, that's the one I meant. No idea why it wouldn't work for me.

Nice banding features setting up over northern Maine. Just starting to get in on the action.

Today's high of 38 was our lowest since April 20. However, after falling to 35 by early evening, it has stalled there. At this rate, we will have a morning low of 33 or even 34, which is barely below average. We may still end up a tenth of a degree above normal for average monthly temperature because of all these near average minimums. So much for the 26-degree minimum they had advertised a few days ago.  In addition, I have yet to see a flake of snow all day. When precipitation does come, it will likely be drizzle or freezing drizzle if it does in fact drop to 32 degrees, which is pushing it.

First real widespread frost of the season here this morning. Felt good, felt like fall.

If this doesn't get the leaves to change, they can just stay green until next fall. :classic_laugh:

Well I guess it worked. Its like a switch was flipped the last few days. We will be at peak color this weekend into halloween.

Charlotte.  We are directly east of Whiteface.  I didn't know Whiteface looked east until I moved here.  I thought it faced north because it gets so icy on that mountain.

There appears to be an end-of-month warmup that will prevent our overall monthly average from being in the minus territory. They have raised Tuesday's max to the 50s, which is one degree above average. Halloween is now looking like upper-50s, five degrees above normal. At best, we will achieve an exactly normal month. It will come down to how cool we can get his weekend. This month came so close to being below normal, but this warmup should end my hopes of a cool month. I knew I was in trouble when I saw orange on a temperature map for Nov.1. That warmup was--as I had feared--pushed up to Oct. 31 and now Oct. 30. I hope the trough associated with the nor'easter can hang around long enough to keep our temperatures down more than expected during the day. It is my only hope. Yesterday's max was four degrees cooler than expected, so that helped a lot. I hope we can keep that going for a few more days.

Makes sense. I don't remember needing the heat this much this time of year!


Past 2 weeks have been the coldest since 1970s. For NYC the Avg temp was 50.4° for period of October 13-27. Coldest since 1976. Before that was 1907

Usually once or twice in October and that's it. It's been needed about everyday past 2 weeks and sometimes multiple times.

We finally broke into minus territory or the month, and today should end up two or three degrees below average. They have lowered tomorrow's max a bit--and tomorrow night's min. However, Wednesday's max has been raised 56-60. This will come down, as expected, to the extent of the Halloween day warmup. Right now, we would end up at exactly average for the month--the first exactly average one in 11 or 12 years (either June 2006 or March 2007). I am rooting for minus. I hope tonight's cold air advection can drop the minimum for today a bit more.

This month will likely end up just above normal at KPIT. As of yesterday, we were at 0.7+ for the month and today and tomorrow should end up below normal, but Wednesday likely will be warm enough to dash any chance of finishing below normal. We are however, below normal for the high temperature for the month but two degrees or so above normal for the low with the month.

All these locations are having the coldest 2nd half of October since 2002..
 
 Hartford (44.8°) 3rd coldest
Bridgeport (49.2°) 8th coldest
NYC (50.1°) 15th coldest
Philly (51.7°) 11th coldest
 
 Look at the trend past couple decades. It's been a long time since feeling this kind of chill for 2nd half of October.

Interesting trend for NYC though - Flat
