(I just realized I hadn't done September yet and it's almost November)

Here are the actual high temperatures in Syracuse for each day in September, 2018 compared to the average high, (based on stats that go back to 1901) and the difference that day, + or – as well as a running deficit or surfeit. Here is the website I used for these numbers:
Syracuse Month Weather - AccuWeather Forecast for NY 13202

The numbers are the date, the actual high, the historical average high, the net difference, the cumulative net since January 1st, the numbers of days we exceeded the historical average, the number of days we didn't reach it and the number of days we tied it.

Comments: Other than a brief taste of fall from 9/8-10, it was a warm month, although things had begun to permanently erode by the end of the month. September has been the warmest month relative to the average high and it’s not even close: +609 degrees over five Septembers, or 150 days, +4 degrees per day. The closest month to that of the first eight months of the year is May, +199 over 155 days, +1.3. The warmest of the remaining months has been October, +294 over 124 days, 2.4. Going into today, (10/25), October 2018 is -12, so that’s going down. Overall over the five years I’ve been doing this, the actual high has exceeded the average high in September 99 times, hit it on the nose 4 times and come up short 47 times.

2014: +85 20-10-0
