AFTER A COOL SUMMER, CONCORD FINALLY BEGAN TO SEE WARM WEATHER BY
THE BEGINNING OF SEPTEMBER. CONCORD SAW TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER
80S FOR MUCH OF THE FIRST WEEK OF SEPTEMBER. COOLER WEATHER ARRIVED
FOR THE MIDDLE OF SEPTEMBER INCLUDING THE FIRST FREEZE OF THE SEASON
ON SEPTEMBER 19TH. BUT THE WARMTH RETURNED TOWARD THE END OF
SEPTEMBER AND LASTED THROUGH THE MONTH OF OCTOBER. A TURN TOWARD
COOLER WEATHER OCCURRED JUST AS THE CALENDAR CHANGED INTO NOVEMBER.
COOLER WEATHER DOMINATED THE MONTH, THOUGH THERE WAS A PERIOD OF
NEAR-RECORD TEMPERATURES FROM NOVEMBER 23RD THROUGH NOVEMBER 25TH.
THIS WAS FOLLOWED IMMEDIATELY BY THE FIRST SIGNIFICANT SNOWSTORM OF
THE SEASON, JUST IN TIME FOR THANKSGIVING.

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE FALL WAS 49.2 DEGREES. THIS WAS 0.4
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. THE WARMEST FALL WAS 1961 WITH AN AVERAGE
TEMPERATURE OF 53.0 DEGREES. THE COOLEST WAS 1972 AT 43.7 DEGREES.

A TOTAL OF 7.99 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION FELL DURING THE FALL. THIS
WAS 3.15 INCHES BELOW NORMAL. THE MORE NOTABLE PRECIPITATION EVENTS
OCCURRED ON OCTOBER 16 AND OCTOBER 22 THROUGH 24. THERE WAS ALSO
HEAVY PRECIPITATION AROUND THANKSGIVING IN NOVEMBER, WITH MUCH OF
THIS FALLING AS SNOW. THE WETTEST FALL ON RECORD WAS 2005 WHEN 22.08
INCHES OF PRECIPITATION FELL. THE DRIEST WAS 1908 WHEN 2.88 INCHES
FELL.

A TOTAL OF 12.9 INCHES OF SNOW FELL IN THE FALL OF 2014, ALL OF IT
IN NOVEMBER AND MOST OF IT AROUND THANKSGIVING. THIS WAS 10.3 INCHES
ABOVE NORMAL. THE BIGGEST SNOWSTORM OCCURRED AROUND THANKSGIVING
WHEN 12.6 INCHES FELL FROM NOVEMBER 26TH THROUGH NOVEMBER 28TH. THE
MOST SNOW ON RECORD WAS 25.7 INCHES IN 2011. THERE HAVE BEEN MANY
YEARS WHERE ONLY TRACES OF SNOW WERE OBSERVED AND 2 YEARS WITH NO
SNOWFALL, MOST RECENTLY IN 2006.

THE FOLLOWING DAILY RECORDS WERE SET OR TIED IN FALL 2014...
DATE      RECORD                              PREVIOUS
OCT 16    1.80 - GREATEST PRECIPITATION       1.35 IN 1943
