What month is it? More cold, rain and snow is here.

TUCSON – Rain overspread much of metro Tucson – AGAIN – tonight and more rain is in the forecast tonight through Tuesday. And oh, don’t look now, but more rain is possible this weekend and even into next week if we can tap into Tropical Storm Tara.

Okay back to the big chill: the first 15 days of October have been colder than the first 15 days of November last year. (How is that even possible?)

So halfway through the month, we now rank as the 19th coldest October since records have been kept (1894). What’s more staggering is if you take out most of the colder October’s which occurred at the beginning of the 20th century, this October ranks as the 4th coldest since 1959! Only the first 15 days of October in 1966, 1970, and 1982 were colder!

 

And by the way, it’s currently snowing on top of Mt. Graham. See the image below.
