So far this year, there have been 130 days with measurable precipitation up to and including Halloween, the most ever in the first ten months of a year, besting the previous record from 2003 by six days and this was twenty-two fewer than 1996's current annual record number. even if 2018 would experience no rain and/or snow through mid November, its year to date record number of such days would still stand.


previous to 2018, never before have the following things happened. January began with eight highs of 32° or colder, July began with five lows of 76° or warmer, October began with eleven lows of 60° or warmer and February ended with ten lows of 36° or warmer. Additionally, September had seventeen lows of 67° or warmer (also a monthly first) and this year joined 1988 as the only two Augusts with lows of 70° or warmer during all of the first eighteen days of the month.
