October 2022 Observations and Discussion


Recommended Posts

FSD finished the month with a +2.3 and -2.07 for temp and precip departures, respectively. A high of 85 occurred on 10/23 and a low of 17 on 10/18. A trace of snow was also recorded on 10/12.

Overall a fairly pleasant fall month with lots of sunshine and variable temperatures. Even had some thunderstorms. Wish we could score more in the precip department though. Hopefully November can flip that script.

I would not call it warm but with the dew point in the mid 50's it dose feel a little humid out today. I would think that there have not been too many Halloween's that have felt that way here in Grand Rapids.

my 3 year old boys were sweating in their cow costumes.  It sure felt "warm".

Our great stretch of autumnal weather will continue with well above normal temps through the middle of next week. We will then cool back to about normal. Mainly dry weather except for late Saturday night into Sunday AM.
The record high for today is 82 degrees set back in 1950. The record low was set the very next year with a 17 degree reading in 1951. The daily rainfall record is 1.24" from 1910.

DISCLAMER: All historical weather data analytics posted here is specifically for the climate of Chester County PA. We continually analyze the actual raw non-adjusted NWS certified Coop and spotter observed climate data for the county.  We make no post observation adjustments to any of the detailed analytics.  Unlike NOAA, we do not apply any post observation adjustments to the historical raw data from the NWS observers.  Climate change is natural and is not leading to future calamity. The only true “Climate Deniers” are people who think the climate should be unchanging. Specifically the Chester County PA analysis has only yielded normal and expected cyclical warming and cooling trends since the 1880's. Any model predictions of catastrophic climate change are not science. Pay little attention to data derived from climate models. To date we have yet to validate even one predicted climate or weather event attributable to climate change. Climate science is only advanced by continually questioning it and challenging it based on the actual climate data.
