October 2013 Weather Summary

The high temperature at Leslie Park for the month of October was just short of 80 degrees, 79.9 degrees on the second day of the month to be specific.  On October 23rd, we recorded our lowest temperature for the month at just 30.2 degrees. We had four days with low temperatures below the freezing point of 32 degrees.

We saw 4.13 inches of rain for the month. The highest amount recorded on a single day was 1.39 on Halloween.  That rain event started the day before and went into the following day. It dumped 1.63 inches of rain on the golf course. This would be a lot of rain for the summer, when the grass would use the water up in respiration, but during the cool, fall temperatures we are seeing now, it will take a while for the ground to dry out. October had two days with over an inch of rain, the other day was the 5th (1.21 inches.) Seven days had over a tenth of an inch and 11 saw some rain.  The total for the year up until now is 27.08 inches of rain.

The highest sustained wind speed was 28 miles per hour  (Oct 6th) and the average windspeed for the month is 2.2 mph. As I write this, on November 1st,  the highest sustained windspeed for the month of November is 34 mph.

This picture has nothing to do with the weather. This large buck was between #11 fairway and #13 tee the other day and I was able to get a picture of him.
