The mercury plummets to 27 degrees, making for frigid trick-or-treating and setting numerous records for the date:
– The lowest temperature for Oct. 31, breaking the mark of 33 degrees reported in 1980.
– The lowest temperature ever in October, surpassing the 32 degrees recorded Oct. 30, 1917.
– The lowest temperature so early in the season, once again breaking the 32 degrees reported Oct. 30, 1917.
– It was the first time since record-keeping began in 1885 for the lowest temperature in October to drop into the 20′s.
