MIKE MOSS SAYS: Terry, We did in fact reach 94 at RDU on the 9th, and that set both a new record daily high for the airport and also extended the latest 90+ day for the year to 9 October. Until this year, the latest reading of 90 or above at the RDU was 93 degrees on Oct 7, 1951.
In checking a few other sites in the immediate vicinity of Raleigh, I did find a NWS cooperative weather station site (listed as "Raleigh 4 SW" on most climate sites) that showed a 91 degree reading on Oct 10, 1939.
