Buresh Blog: Oct. averages... dry "wet" season

Oct. 1, 2019 — Two months! left in the hurricane season.  "Talking the Tropics With Mike" updated every day.

Low / High - 1st: 66 / 84.... 31st: 55 / 77

Rainfall: 3.93"

Sunrise / Sunset: 1st - 7:20am / 7:12pm.... 31st - 7:40am / 6:40pm - lose 52 min. of daylight.

And it's been a hot year again.  As of Sept. 30th, JIA has had 96 90-degree days - well above the avg. of 82 & closing in a top 10 year (2018 is 10th with 99 90-degree days):
