Warmth and Weather Watchers
Columbus Day was quite mild in the Northeast.
Columbus Day was picture-perfect thanks to plenty of sunshine and southerly winds. Highs generally ranged from the upper 60s to upper 70s, which is 5 to almost 20 degrees above normal for October 12 (see below). For the month so far though, much of the Northeast has seen near- to below-normal temperatures. Stay tuned for our mid-month update, which will be available Friday.
