Atlanta sees most 70F+ and consecutive 60F+ nights, first October 90F+ days since 1954

Like all the other southern US cities, Atlanta is well used to heat and humidity during the summer months but this year has been exceptional. After a wet spring, nights have held unusually warm with a record streak of consecutive nights at or above 60F which started early (May) and continued late (September) and in between, the amount of nights remaining at or above 70. The likely contributor was wet ground and unusually warm waters in the Atlantic which kept humidity higher than normal, hence the reason for warm nights.

Another interesting fact is that Atlanta started off October on a very hot note. Not only seeing the first October 90s since 1954 but highs climbed as high as 93 and 90 was topped 3 days in a row.
