DISCUSSION: As many people experienced an abundantly warm Halloween throughout the course of today, it is also neat to see what Halloween was like across the country back in October 1950. As you can see in the graphic above, that climatologically crisp Fall day ended up being anything but that as temperatures soared to more than 10 standard anomalies above normal across nearly the entire northern Plains states. Moreover, surrounding parts of the contiguous United States also saw temperatures reach above-normal values with temperature anomalies of between 3 and 7 units being experienced across an even larger area across parts of the southwestern, south-central, southeastern, and northeastern United States. Certainly was a day that went down in dramatic fashion as far as the history books are concerned!
