October 2017 Current Conditions and Forecasts

Postby stuffradio » Fri Sep 29, 2017 9:58 am

So, first frost of the year coming soon or what? Happy Halloween! Happy Hanukkah! Oh wait, that last one is in a few months. Ok, happy Thanksgiving! I'm actually having my Turkey on October 1st though due to certain people not being here on Thanksgiving itself.

Hopefully that first cold snap happens soon. Some of our best winters had cool/cold Octobers!

I posted this in the general forum, but John Horgan wants us to email him if we want to stop the time changing twice a year. I want it to stop and stay on PDT not PST all year long.

5.5c here this morning. Assuming the wind stays down later, tonight will be very chilly here. Possibly some light frost.

Only got down to 8.5C here. This upcoming week should feature some very chilly mins in most areas on the south coast.
