Did Tucson just have the warmest October on record?

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - Abnormally warm and dry weather dominated October in the Old Pueblo.

According to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish, Tucson's average temperature last month was 77.3°. This marked the 2nd warmest October on record, only trailing last October's record average temperature of 77.5°.

Daytime highs reached 90° or above 23 times in October 2017, which is the third most October 90° days ever recorded. For the year, the mercury has hit 90° or above 186 times. This is the all-time record for most yearly 90°+ days.

Halloween's daytime high of 79° marked the only afternoon with temperatures below average.

No rainfall was measured at Tucson International Airport in October, despite a late run of storms on October 30th. This marked the 12th October on record without rainfall in Tucson. The last time Tucson saw measurable rainfall at the airport was 0.03" back on September 8th.
