Outlook for October

I showed it on our 9 p.m. news Tuesday night, but the outlook for October is very simple for our part of the country. According to the Climate Prediction Center, we're going to have near normal moisture and temperatures through the upcoming month. We start out with average highs in the middle 70s, but by Halloween, our average high drops into the lower 60s. Looking out as far as I can on the models, we won't see any real drastic changes in our weather until the middle of the month. Then we'll start to transition to an active pattern with more drastic temperature variations. It's a little scary to think that in some years, we get snow in the month of October. I remember trick-or-treating several years ago in 4 or 5 inches of the white stuff. Fortunately, it is a rare occurrence to get snow this month.

Yay! I'm so ready for more fall-like temperatures! 60's sound pretty good for football season...isn't the KU-Kstate game Nov. 1st? That will be perfect weather!
I remember trick-or-treating in the snow too! How fun...

I remember trick-or-treating with very slick ice.

Ready for the seasonal temps to take over, going to be really nice weather.
