Good morning and welcome to October!
After a 40 degree morning low, expect sunny skies today and a high around 67, along with a northwest wind at around 5 mph. Tonight will be clear with a light wind, with a low around 39.
Today’s average high is 68 degrees and the average low is 43. By October 31, the average high is 56 and the average low is 34. This is a loss of 12 degrees on the average high and a loss of 9 degrees on the average low by the time this month is over.
Today’s sunrise was at 6:42 AM and the sunset will be at 6:26 PM. On October 31, the sunrise will be at 7:18 AM and the sunset will be 5:39 PM. That is a loss of 36 morning daylight minutes and 47 evening daylight minutes for a total of 1 hour and 23 minutes of lost daylight this month.
October features the final 6 PM sunset of 2017, on the 16th; the next 6 PM sunset will be March 12, 2018, at 6:48 PM (DST starts on that date). We also cross the 7 AM marker for sunrise – again, on October 16 – but we will go before 7 AM for sunrise once again when DST ends on November 5, and the last sunrise before 7 AM this year is December 5.
Have a great day!
