80s Again In October…Whew!

October 5, 2015

We hit 85 in Portland today, and check out the low 80s on the North Coast!


BMAC October 80 degree days

Very unusual to hit 85 in October.  We’ve only been that warm 3 times in the past 24 years in October.  2 of those were last year.  It’s interesting to note it was one year ago today we hit 85 as well…in fact there were 5 consecutive days 80+ last year in early October.  After that we didn’t get above 75 degrees.  Within 2 weeks we were well into the heating season with high temps in the 50s and a few 60s.  Things can (and usually do) change quickly in mid-late October!  So those of you that are tired of sunshine and crisp fall mornings hang on…those cloudy/damp days aren’t far away now.
