In just the past week, the Quad Cities tied a record high of 99° last Monday and then tied a record low of 39° Saturday morning.
For the first half of September, temperatures at the Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois, are running 3.2° above average.
After a couple more cooler than average days today and tomorrow, the heat returns midweek with highs back into the 80s.
My 10-day forecast shows average or above average temperatures continuing through September 25th and NOAA's Climate Prediction Center seems to agree.
This first map is for September 21-25, 2013.
And, looking out through September 29th, the warmth will stick around for us.
So, for those of you that broke down and turned the heat on this past weekend, you'll be able it off and maybe open the windows.
As for 2013, only January and May saw above average temperatures. Through the end of August, 2013 temperatures are running about 1.4° below average.
