More October heat! Another day of record high temperatures were found in the Rockies, Plains and Southeast. Instead of shivering, many trick-or-treaters were sweating under costumes on Monday. Here is a quick recap of some the records that fell:
Southeast and South
Highs were well into the 80s and records were reached in several states from Florida to the Arklatex. Highs almost topped 90 into Tennessee.
