Is that the average maximum temperature for the month?

Just found out that Pittsburgh gets less avg annual sunshine hours than Seattle and Anchorage. Was a little surprised by that. Pittsburgh isn't exactly associated with gloominess like those other two.

That's a wacky month. No days that failed to get above freezing, yet 2 feet of snow. And then there was that spell with 80 degrees one day, then 3 days later 14 inches of snow, then 3 days after that 76 again. Sounds like my ideal March. Take me on that roller coaster

Weather stereotypes are usually created by morons who have no clue about anything related to weather. I've learned over time to ignore weather stereotypes..

Which proves my (and many) point. Ground temps, previous air temps, past stuff means nothing for present events such as snow. If conditions are right, day of, moment of, it will snow, it will stick, it will accumulate, regardless of whether it was 80 degrees or well above normal days before or the ground is warm.

October 2011. Danbury got a devastating 18" snowstorm with leaves on the trees. Many Meteos failed to acknowledge the models showing this. Many used the excuse that its been in the 60s all month and 80s last week and that any snow wouldn't stick. Ridiculous way to forecast

Entire thread on the event with pictures from residents. Models were right. Halloween was cancelled

How much accumulation did you receive from the event?

I got a record October snowfall of half foot. Sounds of trees snapping and transformers humming still in my head. Chainsaws for days on end from all the trees and branches down. Leaves were just changing colors but many still green. If you're ever in CT, ask someone that lives here and they will vividly remember the event and talk about it. power was out for weeks. power company had no idea how to handle all the outages. We had Canada & Ohio crews come help.


A rare sight in October around here.

Canadian Climate Normals 1971-2000 Station Data

They have never had another rain between October and April. In fact, even July has mostly snow there.

More Alert rain climatology to come, including exact dates the first ever spring and last ever recorded fall rain were. It's sometime in May and September, respectively.

It’s actually not quite as extraordinary as it sounds – in the High Arctic absolute monthly maxima often vary little over the whole “winter” from October to April. For example, in Barrow, Alaska, they vary only between 0˚C or 32˚F and 3˚C or 38˚F over all months between November and April, and I will note here that the record maxima have been approached a few other times in most months (e.g. in January 1963 and Christmas, 1983 – on which day Barrow was actually hotter than Dallas, Texas!). This is because, as happened during that period in January 1958, warm air advection from a big blocking anticyclone can produce hotter temperatures than can ever be produced by the low-angle sunlight at the polar regions except during the warmest part of the year. Moreover, because ocean heats and cools more slowly than land, the air will be warmer during the polar night than even during April or May.

Extreme seasonal “inversions” are generally much commoner in the arctic and subarctic than one might presume from the annual temperature ranges – at Anadyr, on the Chuckhi Peninsula of eastern Russia, January 1950 with an average of minus 7.0˚C (about 14 degrees Celsius above the long-term mean) was actually 1˚C warmer than May, 1950 with an average of minus 8.0˚C! At Barrow, the record warm January of 1930 (over the contiguous US the coldest month between 1889 and 1976) was the warmest month between November 1929 and April 1930 inclusive.

If you’re interested in a scientific discussion of the unusual warm wave of January 1958 over Arctic Canada, here is an article from Monthly Weather Review titled ‘Abnormally Mild Temperatures in the Canadian Arctic During January 1958’. As you might gather, the temperatures at Alert and Eureka on 23 January 1958 were then the highest recorded between November and April.
