FOLLOWING IN LINE WITH THIS...THE U.S. DROUGHT MONITOR IMPROVED HALL
COUNTY TO CATEGORY D0 ABNORMALLY DRY CONDITIONS DURING THE
MONTH...MARKING THE FIRST TIME SINCE JULY 2012 THAT THE COUNTY WAS
VOID OF CATEGORY D1 MODERATE-OR-WORSE DROUGHT. TEMPERATURE-WISE...IT
WAS AN INCREDIBLY "AVERAGE" MONTH...AS THE MONTHLY DEPARTURE FROM
NORMAL MADE THE RARE DISTINCTION OF EXACTLY-MATCHING THE 30-YEAR
NORMAL TO THE NEAREST TENTH OF A DEGREE.

TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT PRECIPITATION...THE MONTHLY TOTAL OF 4.05
INCHES AT CENTRAL NEBRASKA REGIONAL AIRPORT WAS 217% OF THE OCTOBER
NORMAL OF 1.86 INCHES. THIS RANKED AS THE 9TH-WETTEST OCTOBER ON

THE MONTH...MARKING THE FOURTH-CONSECUTIVE OCTOBER WITHOUT
MEASURABLE SNOW (ALTHOUGH OCT. 2012 HAD A NON-MEASURABLE TRACE).

AS STATED EARLIER...TEMPERATURE-WISE IT ENDED UP BEING AN INCREDIBLY
"NORMAL" MONTH...AS A SOMEWHAT WARMER-THAN-NORMAL FIRST HALF WAS
"CANCELLED OUT" BY A COOLER SECOND HALF. OVERALL...THE MONTHLY MEAN
TEMPERATURE RESULTING FROM AVERAGING BOTH THE HIGHS AND LOWS WAS
52.2 DEGREES...EXACTLY-MATCHING THE 30-YEAR NORMAL. AS EVIDENCE OF
THE TRANSITION FROM WARMER TO COOLER WEATHER...11 OF THE FIRST 15
DAYS OF THE MONTH FEATURED AN ABOVE NORMAL MEAN TEMPERATURE...WHILE
13 OF THE FINAL 16 DAYS OF THE MONTH HAD A BELOW NORMAL MEAN
TEMPERATURE. BREAKING DOWN THE MONTH INTO MORE DETAIL...THE
OVERALL-WARMEST WEEK WAS CENTERED FROM THE 7TH-13TH...HIGHLIGHTED BY
HIGHS BETWEEN 77-81 DEGREES FROM THE 7TH-10TH. HOWEVER...THE
OUTRIGHT-WARMEST HIGH TEMPERATURE WAS 86 DEGREES ON THE 2ND. AS
THINGS TOOK A COOLER TURN...THE OVERALL-COOLEST WEEK WAS CENTERED
FROM THE 24TH-30TH AS HIGH TEMPERATURES CLIMBED NO HIGHER THAN 55
DEGREES ON FIVE OF THOSE SEVEN DAYS...INCLUDING THE COOLEST HIGH OF
THE MONTH OF 45 DEGREES ON THE 29TH. THE COLDEST LOW TEMPERATURE OF
THE MONTH WAS 30 DEGREES ON BOTH THE 18TH AND 21ST...MARKING THE

COLDER. THE MILDEST LOW TEMPERATURE OF THE MONTH WAS 61 DEGREES ON
THE 3RD.
