October 2016 had highs in the 80s, and with this October following suit, this was the first time back-to-back Octobers had 80° highs since 2001-2002, and the first time in a decade the temperature reached 80° on this date.


That's pretty amazing that it's been such a long time since the last back-to-back years considering that there were 19 years in a row, from 1938-1956, with 80-degree readings in October. Between 1938-1970 90% of Octobers had at least one day with a high in the 80s, but that % has dropped to just 40% in the years since.


How's this for amazing? The Octobers of 2016, 2017 and 2018 each had at least one day that either reached or exceeded eighty degrees, making this the longest such October streak since 1967-1970.
