October weather was cool and wet

November 02, 2012 at 04:27 PM

The State Journal-Register

CHAMPAIGN - October was cooler and wetter than normal in Illinois, according to figures from the Illinois State Water Survey.

Precipitation averaged 3.94 inches statewide, 0.68 inches above normal, while the average temperature of 52.2 degrees was 1.9 degrees below normal.

The wettest area of the state was between Quincy and Champaign, where rainfall totals ranged from 4-7 inches last month. Most areas of the state hit overnight lows of 32 degrees. Temperatures in northern Illinois fell as low as 28 degrees.

Springfield had 5.03 inches of rain during October, according to the National Weather Service at Lincoln.

The wet weather slowed the fall harvest, though 94 percent of the state’s corn and 87 percent of soybeans had been harvested this week.

Though much of the state is now drought free, the Illinois Water Survey report showed 2012 remained the second-warmest year on record through October and the 15th driest.

The average temperature of 58.9 degrees from January through October was 3.4 degrees above normal and average precipitation of 27.1 inches was 5.8 inches below normal.
