October Outlook

This September has tracked September of 2002 very closely across the nation.

Much of the Southeast has had a top 10 or even top 5 warmest September on record so far and no big cool off is in sight yet although the 90s will go away soon.

We’ve had 5 consecutive months of above-normal temperatures (on average) for below normal you have to go back to April.

Here is how the October that followed played out:

And while this is not my winter forecast (too soon for that) just for fun here’s what that winter looked like:

cd2601 cd c101 c062 a031 a847 27b8 3950.263.11.2.17.prcpcd2601 cd c101 c062 a031 a847 27b8 3950.263.11.2.35.prcp

January 2002 had 1-4 inches of snow in Atlanta with a few small pockets of 6 inches.
