It was mild and very humid with humidity in the 87% to 97% range all day.  (Typical daily range in October is 57% to 77%).  While the high of 70° was the mildest reading in  nearly two weeks, the day’s low of 61° was the first low in the 60s in five weeks (61° is the average high on 10/25).  Overall, the day was 11 degrees above average.  With the dew point so close to the air temperature ( just a few degrees apart), thick fog was produced, reducing visibility to one mile or less from 2 AM until noon.

2021 - today’s high of 73° was the last 70° day of the year. this was the earliest date for this occurrence since 2012, when the last 70° day was on October fifteenth. just like today, Oct. 15 of 2012 was also a Monday. this broke a string of six years (from 2015 to 2020 inclusive) which had their last 70° day on or after November first. on average, the last 70° day of the year usually happens within the first week of November.
