The mean temperature for the first 27 days of October at Barrow has been 28.0F. The warmest October was 2006 with an average temperature of 25.5F. This means Barrow would have to have an average temperature of 8.6F the last four days of the month NOT to set a new record for the entire month. Since winds remain west to northwest, there is no chance at all of that happening and it is a certainty that Barrow will have the warmest October of record.
