Extreme Temperature Diary Monday October 5th, 2020/ Main Topic: Delta Dawns As A Big Threat To The Central Gulf Coast

Sunday October 4th… Dear Diary. The main purpose of this ongoing blog will be to track United States extreme or record temperatures related to climate change. Any reports I see of ETs will be listed below the main topic of the day. I’ll refer to extreme or record temperatures as ETs (not extraterrestrials).😉
