Spectacular Sunday

I just took this picture outside of the station. I am sure you already know this, but it is a near-perfect day. We had a high of 80 today. That is our first 80 degree day since September 2nd and the third one this month. It’s possible it could be our last 80 of the year. 80s become pretty scarce as we head into the middle of September. Tell me if you think we’ll get to 80 again this year in the comments section.

September has been cooler than average so far. After a very warm summer, our 2nd warmest on record, September has been a little chilly. We have actually not had a below average month of temperatures since October, 2009. Take a look at the last 11 months:

September so far 2010: -1.4 degrees

August 2010: +4.8 degrees

July 2010: + 3.6 degrees

June 2010: +2.3 degrees

May 2010: +3.4 degrees

April 2010: +5.8 degrees

March 2010: +4.5 degrees

February 2010: + 2.1 degrees

January 2010: +1.7 degrees

December 2009: +.2 degrees

November 2009: +6.4 degrees

October 2009: -3.1 degrees

It has certainly been a warm stretch of weather and I don’t expect a big change any time soon. In the meantime, a pretty nice week on the way. Monday will be beautiful with partly sunny skies and a high in the middle seventies. Cooler for Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the middle 60s. Next chance of rain arrives with showers and storms on Thursday.

Have a great day.

  1. I say we reach 78 degrees again, but not 80 🙂

  2. This calls for some 80s after September 12 statistics:

    2009… 9/13 – 81, 9/14 – 85, next highest was 76.
    2008… 9/20 – 82, 9/27 – 82, close as late as 10/12 with a 78.
    2007… 9/18 – 86, 9/21 – 87, 9/24 – 88, 9/30 – 80, 10/05 – 82, 10/06 – 87, 10/07 – 85, 10/08 – 85, close as late as 10/21 with a 77.
    2006… 9/17 – 83, next highest was a 76.

    2001 is the only recent year to not post an 80 after this date.

    • Daniel,

      I knew I could bait you into getting some stats. Thanks for the information.

  3. Looks like the street needs some repair? LOL

    • Funny. I am definitely not a photographer and taking pictures with the iphone is not the best.
