Cold air "mirage?"

Come October, South Floridians eagerly await the first sign of cold air.

Could it be that it already stealthily arrived in September?

This chart reports daily "high and low" air temperatures for the long-time weather station at Naples Airport.  The blue bars indicate verified data and the red bars indicates the forecast for this week.  The background gray coding shows the long-term average and record daily highs and lows.

Not quite:

What looks like cooler daytime temperatures on the daily temperature chart above is actually just an affirmation of what anybody who lives in southwest Florida (and regularly looks outside their window) already knows: It's been cloudier than normal in southwest Florida. And rainier, too.

But not less humid!


Conclusion: The summer slog continues.
