StormTrack Central's Chief Meteorologist Jeff Cox has revealed some extreme weather data for the central Georgia area.
As we head deeper into the fall months and closer to the year's end, StormTrack Central's Chief Meteorologist Jeff Cox has revealed some extreme weather data for the central Georgia area. Here's some fun facts he's put together:
October 2011 in Macon will go down as the 4th coldest October in Macon history (dating back to 1930). It was the coldest October since 1988 with an average temperature of 61.3 degrees, which is 4 degrees below average!
There was a big chill in the air for central Georgia on this Halloween. In fact, it was the coolest Halloween for Macon since 2008. Halloween 2011 will go down as nearly 10 degrees below average and tied for the 7th coolest Halloween in Macon history!
The temperature in Macon fell to the freezing mark Tuesday morning! That's pretty rare for a November 1st. In fact, it's only the 5th time in Macon history (dating back to 1930) that November has started out at or below freezing.
Naturally, the next question deals with what to expect this winter. According to Jeff, for now, the long range forecast doesn't call for prolonged cooler or warmer than average temperatures. Jeff does add that it's possible we'll see occasional sharp swings from warm to cold.
You can catch Jeff's forecast weekdays at 5, 5:30 and 10 p.m. on FOX 24 and at 7 and 11 p.m. on ABC 16. Make sure to follow our team of meteorologists on Facebook by searching 'StormTrack Weather'.
