October 2000 are taken from the automated surface observation system
near the original observation site. These observations are compared
to normals for 1981 to 2010. Any data listed from years before 1952
were taken at nearby sites. Note all temperatures are in fahrenheit
and precipitation is in inches. All climate data listed in this
product are unofficial. For official data, please refer to the
