A HOT September, But Not "1925" HOT.

So far this month, we are running about 3.6 degrees above average for the month of September! You don't need me to tell you that it has been hot! Each day, the high temperature has been at or above average. While it has been rather hot, I've noticed that most of the record highs this month are from 1925, so I did some research this afternoon. Take are look at the climate log from September of 1925 taken by the sisters at the Holy Angels Convent on KAIT road. This was the official climate log for Jonesboro:

Look how hot it was! 100+ for the first 10 days. While it has been rather warm this month, it was not nearly as bad as 1925.

It's always neat to look at these historic climate logs. The comments sections often have some cool things to read. Be sure to click the image to enlarge. I think it is interesting to note that despite the hot and dry start in 1925, they ended with almost 6.00" of rainfall.

We will talk more about this data from 1925, tonight on Region 8 News at 5:00 and 6:00.
