Wild temperature swing starts October

  • 0

There was a 51-degree temperature difference last week between Monday afternoon and Friday morning, according to National Weather Service data.

That Monday reached an unseasonably hot 90 degrees. Friday morning’s 39 degrees was unseasonably cold.

Between those marks about 2 inches of rain fell over the course of several days.

Then came a wet weekend.

The Carroll Chamber of Commerce canceled the annual Band Day parade due to the threat of storms Saturday morning, and about 1.3 inches of rain fell, according to the weather service.

The start of this week brought a return to normal. Highs in the high 60s and lows in the mid 50s are typical.

Last month was warmer and wetter than a typical September, with an average temperature that was about 6 degrees higher and about 50 percent more rain. Nearly 5 inches of rain fell in September.
