Weather Extra – Monthly Review/Preview

Weather

If you tell ask anyone if they are surprised it was a record breaking month of September, they would answer no. But the record we broke it different than the one they assumed. September ended up being the warmest on record, beating 1931 by less than a third of a degree. As for wettest, we fell a little short of the record breaking 2004. The average temperature for the entire month was over 7° higher than the long term average. That was accomplished mostly by the muggy nights as low temperatures were 11° above average. 

October can still be a warm month. High temperartures near to above 80° are still fairly common and we have reached 90° in the past. But the longer nights start to win out and the chance for fog and frost continues to increase through the end of the month. 

Here is the September summary for Altoona.
