October weather report Galeton

October weather report for Galeton

 With the exception of Super Storm Sandy, October was a very nice, rather normal October month. The first part of October was warm, as was the later part of the month with several days with temperatures in the 70's. In the middle part of the month it was cooler with our first hard freeze on the 11th and then a 22 degree reading was noted on the 14th.
Of course we were all bracing for Sandy. Sandy was a storm of epic proportions. The New Jersey coast and New York City were hard hit with record breaking destruction. Fortunately Galeton survived very well with 2.29" of rainfall, moderate winds and no power outages. My barometer showed a reading of 980MB. This was a very low reading as Sandy passed near our area.
For the month we received 4.77" of rainfall which is close to normal. Last year we had 5.34" with a trace of snow.  This year we had no snow or thunderstorms. We did have 14 foggy mornings.
Now, for what it is worth, my boss, Paul Head, at the NWS in State College, predicts a normal winter season with normal temps and snowfall (50"-60") He said I could quote him, so blame Paul, not me.
