Summer's Gone Fall Is Here Things Normal Barring unforseen cir- cumstances, October's bright blue weather should be waiting just around the corner. For those who enjoy statistics, and statistics are far more reliable than human memory, this is how the Summer season shaped up in Charles Town. Temperaturewise the summer was just a trifle warmer than a longterm average, or very close to a normal summer season. The "mean" temperature this summer was 72.9 degrees, while the season last year averaged 71.3, or just a little cooler than this year. There is one oddity in this in the fact that the summer of 1977 contained 42 days upon which the readings exceeded 90 degrees, whereas this year that mark was topped only 21 times. The highest reading for the summer was 96 degrees, reached on three occasions.
