[californiadisasters] On This Date In California Weather History (October 14)

2015: Unseasonable high pressure and warm ocean waters led to very warm October days
and the warmest October nights on record from this day through 10/15.
In San Diego, five out of the six highest October minimum temperatures on record occurred.
The highest minimum temperature in any October was 76° on this day and again on 10/13.
This is only two degrees off the highest minimum temperature for any time of year!
(Onlyseven nights in history recorded 77° or 78°, all of which occurred during September, meaning these October nights were warmer than any night in July or August in San Diego).
On this day the highest minimum temperature in October was also recorded in Chula Vista (73°, only three degrees off all-time highest), Oceanside Harbor (74°, only two degrees off all-time
highest), and El Cajon (tied 69°).
On 10/13 Santa Ana recorded 78°, the highest October minimum temperature on record.
The top six warmest October nights on the Chula Vista record occurred this month, and the top five in El Cajon occurred this month.
