This is the 6-10 day temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for Oct. 14-18. We continue the pattern of warm in the East and cool in the West and that will likely last through much of October. The average high temperature for this week starts at 63 and falls to 61 by next weekend.
The last year that had a lot of strong Atlantic hurricanes was 2005 – that was the year of Katrina, Rita and Wilma – we ran the alphabet and then some. That year September in G.R. was 5.3 deg. warmer than average (warmer than this past September which was 3.9 deg. warmer than average), October was 2.8 deg. warmer than average and November was 2.1 deg. warmer than average.
