October Climate

first_imgThe state was split into precipitation “haves” and “have nots” last month as western Georgia received copious rainfall and the eastern half the state remained dry. The dry conditions for most of the state this month aided farmers in finishing their harvesting of peanuts, cotton and other crops. However, dryland peanuts and cotton are not grading well due to the drought the past few weeks. Cotton was also hurt by the heavy rains that fell on Oct. 14 and 15 as the bolls were opening. Dry conditions in eastern Georgia delayed planting of small grains and winter forage. Frost ended the growing season in a few areas of the state. Temperatures across the state were generally above normal, and many record highs were broken or tied. Above-average monthly temperatures were found in Atlanta, where the monthly average temperature was 66.2 degrees Fahrenheit, 2.9 degrees above normal; in Athens, 64.2 F, 1.2 degrees above normal; Columbus, 67.5 F, one degree above normal; Macon, 65.3 F, 0.4 degrees above normal; Savannah, 70 F, 2.1 degrees above normal; and Augusta, 65.3 F, 0.9 degrees above normal. Below-average monthly temperatures occurred in Brunswick, 70 F, or 0.5 degrees below normal; Alma, 67.9 F, 0.5 degrees below normal; Albany, 67.9 F, 0.2 degrees below normal; and Valdosta 68.2 F, 0.5 degrees below normal. Record high temperatures were recorded at eight stations across the state and high temperatures tied existing records at 11 sites. Most notable among them was the 90-degree record set in Savannah on Oct. 27, which broke the old record of 89 F set in 1940 and set a new record for the latest 90-degree day in the city’s long history, eclipsing the old record-setting date of Oct. 21, 1943. Climate records in Savannah date back to 1871. Meanwhile, Athens set a record low temperature with a 38-degree night on Oct. 5, beating the old record of 39 F set in 1974. Macon tied a record low temperature of 37 F on the same date. Athens also set a record low daytime temperature on Oct. 4, with the high reaching only 66 F, beating the old record of 71 F set in 1941. Macon also set a new record low daytime temperature of 69 F on the same date, undercutting the 1911 record of 73 F. The highest monthly total precipitation recorded by the National Weather Service was 4.26 inches in Columbus, 1.68 inches above normal, and the lowest was in Augusta—0.61 inches, 2.66 inches below normal. Atlanta received 3.54 inches of precipitation, 0.13 inches above normal; Athens received 3.41 inches, 0.14 inches below normal; Macon, 1.57 inches, 1.22 below normal; Albany, 3.56 inches, 0.97 inches above normal; Brunswick, 2.83 inches, 1.63 inches below normal; Alma, 1.72 inches, 1.31 inches below normal; and Valdosta, 1.36 inches, 1.84 inches below normal. Most of the rain that fell at the wetter stations was reported on a single day, Oct. 14. On that day, a developing low-pressure center in Oklahoma brought a stationary front to western Georgia, dumping copious rain on the area. Atlanta, Athens and Columbus all set new record high precipitation amounts for that date. Atlanta received 2.54 inches, beating the old record of 1.92 inches set in 1959. Athens received 2.78 inches; the old record was 1.30 inches, also in 1959. Columbus saw a whopping 3.91 inches; the old record of 1.49 inches was set in 2009. The highest single-day rainfall, recorded by a Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network volunteer, was 4.57 inches observed near Rabun Gap in Rabun County on Oct. 15. An observer in Meriwether County’s Greenville recorded the second highest amount of 3.97 inches. A Jackson County observer in Braselton reported 3.94 inches on Oct. 15. The highest monthly total rainfall was 10.19 inches, observed by an observer 3.5 miles northeast of Dillard in Rabun County and 9.11 inches by the Rabun Gap observer mentioned previously. Georgians saw severe weather on six days in October. Wind damage occurred on Oct. 3, 10, 13 and 14, with hail damage on Oct. 6 and 9. The most notable severe weather occurred on Oct. 13, when six small tornadoes were observed in Atlanta and central Georgia. Five of the six tornadoes were seen in the Atlanta metro area early in the morning. Of these, the greatest damage came in an EF-1 tornado in Alpharetta. You can read about the tornadoes at www.srh.noaa.gov/ffc/?n=2004101_northga_tors. The outlook for November shows that conditions are expected to continue to be relatively quiet. The tropical storm season is nearly over and very little additional activity is expected this year. Predictions of temperature and precipitation show equal chances of above, near and below normal conditions. The three-month prediction for November through January shows no favored temperature patterns, but does show an increased chance of above normal rainfall, especially in south Georgia. This is linked to the expected development of a weak El Niño in the next couple of months, which should affect the Southeast through winter.last_img read more

first_img A long and intense face-off ended with KSI shoving Logan Paul The fight was a messy affair and Paul had two points docked for fouling KSI. That was a moment of distress that he needed to overcome.“When I got knocked down? People said: ‘This is it!’“I had five minutes to recover but only took one because I needed to put the pressure on Logan. Even when I was drowsy I knew: ‘I’m not losing this’.“That’s my mind-set with everything – boxing, YouTube, music. If I say that I’m going to win, then I’m going to win.”YouTuber boxing has continued.Jake Paul, Logan’s younger brother, defeated Britain’s AnEsonGib and is scheduled to fight former NBA player Nate Robinson this month. 1:02 A long and intense face-off ended with KSI shoving Logan Paul – Advertisement – 1:14 KSI says beating Logan Paul opened doors to success in other aspects of his career Look back at KSI’s split-decision victory over Logan Paul KSI vs Logan Paul appalled and entertained in equal measure – it was an eccentric, baffling whirlwind of teenagers and online influencers colliding in a spectacle that attracted more eyeballs than they could have ever imagined.The fight itself?In 2018 KSI and Paul brawled to a draw in Manchester in an event dubbed “”the biggest internet event in history” – so on November 9, 2019 they removed their headguards, turned professional, and fought a six-round rematch in Los Angeles which Britain’s KSI won via split decision.“Me and Logan had no right to headline a boxing show like that,” KSI now admits.“A lot of old heads and boxing fanatics were angry, annoyed, confused.“Afterwards people saw what it brought to the scene. It brought a younger audience and got people interested.”That much is true.The stakes for their unique fight a year ago were simple – the loser would become a meme for life, constantly reminded of failure whenever they scrolled through their phone. That was the threat.“If you get knocked out, that’s your career done,” KSI now says.His success in the past 12 months proves there were colossal consequences in that YouTuber boxing match.KSI happily gave Sky Sports his memories on the anniversary but Paul, as you may expect, has not acknowledged it.“Do you see Logan talking about anything? He was a ghost. He saw his socials: ‘You lost, you lost, you lost’.“That sucks.“In the back of your mind it must eat away. No-one wants to lose. Not a lot of people want to be in that situation.”So at what point is it fair to commend these YouTuber boxers for putting on the line the thing that value most? For risking that which they hold dearest?

He has nimbly readjusted to the next phase of a career which started by playing the FIFA video game and streaming it to YouTube, a platform where he currently has 22 million subscribers.“I knew how important it was,” he reflects on the fight.“My legacy was on the line.“If I lost I wouldn’t be able to make a tune with Rick Ross! It wouldn’t have the same feel.“I wouldn’t be as big as I am in music.“Me winning that fight is the reason why so many eyes are now drawn to my music.”KSI has released ‘Really Love’, a song alongside Craig David, and his second album is out next year.“It’s upping my value when it comes to a boxing fight,” he smiles.This was always the plan but would Craig David have looked twice if KSI emerged with a 0-1 boxing record?“I really don’t let things get to me,” KSI said. “Because if I do, I would freak out and panic.“‘I’m fighting in front of millions with everything on the line?’“My head would implode!“I kept everything calm and collected. This was another step in my career that I needed to do to get to the next step.“I knew how big it was. I knew it was humongous. But it never got to me, man.“I never look at social media, newspapers or anything to do with the fight. I focused on training – until the pressure got to me, and I started swinging!” KSI believes that there will be more YouTuber boxing 0:55 KSI on the mooted fight with Jake Paul 1:08 Look back at KSI’s split-decision victory over Logan Paul KSI on the mooted fight with Jake Paul KSI vs Jake Paul is the natural route to go.“We will see more but it’s about finding the right fights,” KSI said. “You need fights where people are invested.“Me and Jake Paul? There is a narrative. I beat his brother, he beat my brother. It is huge. People would love to see it.“It is the finale of fights in terms of YouTuber boxing.”But to entice KSI is now a heftier task than it was a year ago. He added: “Of course I would do it again. I’m waiting for the right contract.“When I was in the Mayweather camp I spoke to people there. I understand how valuable I am, how in demand I am.“Fight Jake Paul for less money than I got for fighting Logan? Why would I do that?”Interestingly Viddal Riley, the 4-0 cruiserweight prospect who acted as KSI’s trainer for the Paul fight, has distanced himself from returning to the YouTuber boxing scene.Riley told Sky Sports: “It needs to stop. It’s gone too far now.“The only fight that makes sense is Jake and KSI. Once that happens, end it on a high note before YouTuber boxing gets a bad name.”KSI’s response?“Once the right money is made, I’ll talk to Viddal and he will come around,” he smiled.So will the rest of us.Watch an exclusive interview with KSI on the Sky Sports Boxing YouTube page. – Advertisement – The enormity of what was on the line between KSI and Logan Paul in YouTuber boxing’s most outrageous moment may only be truly clear a year later.The winner KSI (Knowledge, Strength, Integrity) had his net worth valued at £12 million on The Sunday Times’ Rich List in May 2020 but, since then, has released his debut studio album and, more recently still, a single with Craig David. Yes, really.“I knew that if I won it would open a lot of doors. And it did,” KSI frankly tells Sky Sports one year after beating Paul – but the lure of the boxing ring is proving addictive to him.
