In the midst of this balmy, October weather, I sneaked a look at the weather a year ago. I saw an archived item about a local storm report — talking about snow in the Sierra Nevada. There were reports of heavy snow in the mountains of Fresno, Tulare and Madera counties.
Earlier in the month last year, there was an item about record heat. It was a good reminder of how quickly things can change in October.
No one has complained to me about temperatures in the 80s during the day and 50s at night. Air quality has been pretty good, too.
But if the nice weather continues into November, people will begin to get nervous about a third consecutive dry winter in Central California.
