I hope that is what that means, and I hope they are right. But I am a little concerned when I see these real early cold snaps breaking records, because I have been faked out by that a few times over the years.
I'm trying to remember how it started last year. I'm thinking the backpack in the Sipsey Wilderness - 1st weekend in Oct. - was about 38F, pretty much about like this time. Then after that came a winter that was a summer.
