Mother Nature has finally released her summer stranglehold on us! This year was typical with the first 100-degree day occurring Monday, May 31st. We usually heat up the third week of May and stay warm until about the third week of October.

So, for now, consider summer done and look for cold weather to set in shortly. While overnight temperatures are dipping into the lower 60s for now and the average low in September is 71 degrees, next month finds us at 59.

The colder months yield average lows as follows:

Month         Degrees

October                59

November             46

December             39

January                39

February               41

March                   49

During winter, we can get low temperatures in the teens. On January 8, 1963, we set a record low of 8-degrees. What will this winter be? No one knows for sure, but the Farmer’s Almanac forecasts cooler than normal temps with a couple substantial storms in January.
