Cold And Wet October
October 2009 was one of the coldest and wettest on record for most of the Midwest and Mississippi valley. Cheyenne, Wy had its coldest and snowiest October ever, North Platte, Ne had its snowiest and second coldest, and Goodland, Ks had its coldest with records going back to 1850. Many areas have also had record rainfall in October including Paducah, Ky, (10.55 inches), Memphis, Tn (10.56 inches), Little Rock, Ar (16.56), Shreveport, La (20.35 inches), and St. Louis, Mo where 12.38 inches is almost 4 inches more than the previous record of 8.52 set in 1909, and more than quadruple the normal October amount of 2.76.
Also, the storm mentioned yesterday over Hudson Bay bottomed out at 953 mb.
