After more than 5 days with rain and a thick low, hanging overcast, its nice to see the sun. October typically sees 52% sunshine overall so we have some ground to make up.



In fact, this stretch of dry days will be long lasting. The 8 day shows roughly 8 days of sunshine with above normal temps. Does this happen very often?  The data shows it happens more than we think; 4 times since 1990!


Here is our 8day stretch starting today:   65, 70, 73, 75, 78, 78, 75, 71


10 DAYS:  10/3 to 10/12 in 2004 - 64, 59, 57, 68, 75, 75, 70, 61, 61, 60

8 DAYS:    10/5 to 10/12 in 2002 - 68, 71, 65, 60, 66, 68, 69, 63

8 DAYS:   10/10 to 10/17 in 1998 - 60, 65, 73, 64, 56, 58, 70, 77

8 DAYS:   10/10 to 10/17 in 1994 -  55, 62, 69, 64, 67, 68, 70, 75

So if you are heading to Szalay's in Peninsula to pick out some pumpkins and try the corn maze or walk along the Cuyahoga River on the bike path, the temps and sun will be perfect.  Also, head out to Mapleside Farms. The hayrides are fantastic!


What does the early winter have in store?  Here is a hint:  The pattern is looking eerily like the winters of the early 1950s. More on this later this month....Here we go!

So, big snow and cold like '50-'51 or mild like '52-'54?

More than likely a snowy winter like 50-51. Whether or not we see a BIG snow remains to be seen
