High temperatures over the past six days were three pairs of the same reading: 64° on 10/4 and 10/5; 65° on 10/6 and 10/7; and 70° yesterday and today.
A cold front moved through during the morning, but before it did the temperature was in the 70s for a few hours after midnight, making this the ninth day in a row with a high in the 70s. During this string of mild days (five of which had highs of 77° or warmer) the average high was 76°, eight degrees above average.
Today was the warmest day of the month, with a high of 84° (after a very mild morning low of 68°). Overall, the day was 16 degrees warmer than normal, and fell in the midst of a streak of very mild days. During this 10-day span, Oct. 6-15, temperatures were 13 degrees above average. However, not every day saw sunny skies as rain fell six days in a row between Oct. 8-13, amounting to 2.88".
Although today's mean temperature was just one degree cooler than average (high/low of 62°/53°), this was the only below-average day between Sept. 28 and Oct. 22, a span of 25 days.
After a warm day, with a high in the upper 70s, a cold front triggered a period of heavy rain just as Friday evening rush hour was getting underway. 0.89" poured down between 5-7:00, with much of it falling in the first hour.
One day after the latest date for a low in the 70s happened, that record was broken as today's low was 71°. And like yesterday, the high got no higher than 77°, as skies were overcast and dew points were in the muggy 70s throughout the day, a rare occurrence in October.
