NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2010
issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter
|Greetings fellow Weatherfun members and welcome to the October issue of the Weatherfun Newsletter and Jerry's Words. |
Well, summer has passed and fall has arrived. It was a very hot and humid summer here in Warren, with high humidity, and high dew points, making for one hot summer. I reached a high of 103 degrees.
Now that Fall has arrived and so have the cool temps. We have had morning lows in the 40's and had to put the wood stove on once to take the chill off the house. Looks like it is time for me to order my cord wood for the winter season.
The remnants of Nicole went through this area a few days ago and dropped 0.61 of an inch of rain, and a peak gust wind of 42 MPH. Blue Hill Weather Observatory that some of us visited this past July had a peak gust wind of 63 MPH and sustained winds of 41 MPH. Imagine being up on the roof in winds like that?

Santa Barbara, CA was the only major U.S. city that had its coldest summer on record, though several other California cities were unusually cool. San Diego had its 3rd coolest summer, and the Los Angeles airport had its 2nd coolest summer.
Fortunately, it was a very wet summer, and the record heat did not lead to widespread drought. Summer 2010 ranked as the 16th wettest summer in the 116-year record for the contiguous U.S. Wisconsin had its wettest summer on record, and six other states had a top-ten wettest summer. No state had a top-ten driest summer.
