Today has been the chilliest fall day of 2010 with temperatures barely crossing the 50-degree threshold. This morning's brisk wind has thankfully relented so it's not at all unpleasant especially if you're standing in the sun. But as the sun sets this evening (around 6:07 p.m.), temperatures quickly fall into the 40s - so be sure to dress warmly if you're headed to the polls late.
Through Tonight: We get another clear and cold night. Evening temperatures falling through the 40s reach the 30s after midnight most places (except downtown). The normally colder suburbs bottom out from 29-32, with mid-to-upper 30s downtown. Pretty much the entire region runs the risk of frost by morning.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Sunshine is dominant through much of the day though a few high clouds could sneak in late. It's not as cold as today thanks to a light wind from the south. Highs reach the mid-50s in most spots.
October globally warm: Satellite temperature measurements of the globe have existed since 1979, and October 2010 was the third warmest October on record. The global temperature was about 0.76 F above average. Due to the effects of a strengthening La Nina (in all likelihood), October was 0.32 F less warm than September compared to average. For the year, 2010 is in a statistical dead heat with 1998 for the warmest on record. Read more: Roy Spencer and the Blackboard
