The weather so far this year has been fairly unpredictable. Between longer cold spells, constant rain, no rain, and even summer temperatures in September, it’s been hard to know what to expect.


Chris Miller, Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said the month of September was on average 5 to 7 degrees warmer in Central Illinois than last year. Now that the temperatures are dropping, Miller explains the difference between a frost and a hard freeze.


The peak storm season may be in the Spring, but that doesn’t mean strong storms won’t hit during fall and winter.



Miller appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM morning show.
