After recording the coldest start to October, we had a snippet of what we've been missing over the past few days. This week has given us sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s. We've been trying to get in all the outside time we can before these days are long gone.
The National Weather Service STL has updated their records through October 19, and Columbia is still recording the coldest average temperature, while St. Louis is recording the 2nd coldest. View their data here.
After recording 0.05" this morning, our October total tipped the 8" mark. We are currently above the yearly average by 5.89" with 2.5 months to go.
