Third coldest October on record for the US
Oklahoma for example had its coldest October in the last 115 years. 19 states had one of their coldest 10 Octobers in the last 115 years. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has this report:
The average October temperature of 50.8°F was 4.0°F below the 20th Century average and ranked as the 3rd coolest based on preliminary data.
For the nation as a whole, it was the third coolest October on record. The month was marked by an active weather pattern that reinforced unseasonably cold air behind a series of cold fronts. Temperatures were below normal in eight of the nation's nine climate regions, and of the nine, five were much below normal. Only the Southeast climate region had near normal temperatures for October. . . . .
I am sure that one could pull out some month were temperatures are high, but the question for this post is how would the media cover that story. My guess is that if this were the third warmest October on record there would be significant discussions in the media about it.
By the way, over the last three months, the temperature was the 8th coldest out of the last 115 years. Over the last six months, the temperature was the 34th coldest out of the last 115 years.
