Pleasant temperatures are dominating our weather over the past few days with highs generally in the 60s and the 70s.

However, we've seen a lot of warm weather this September.

Highs have been at 80° or higher for eighteen of the first twenty-nine days in September.  Two of those days were at 90° or higher.

The average September temperature this year (through September 29th) is 70.8°.  That's 5.3° above average.

This ranks as the third warmest September on record in the Quad Cities.
