Despite the Cold Ending October Comes up Average

Posted: Updated:

Amazing as it may sound, after all of the ups and downs through the month of October, we end… well… exactly where we should. Even though highs ranged from 77 to 39, we finished the month just .2 degrees above the 30 year average… about as "normal" as you can get. It was just one of those months where we had 2 extreme halves; the first with well above normal temperatures and the second with well below normal temperatures. The bright side to the very topsy turvy weather is that we finished at or above average in precipitation area wide with only far northern Minnesota winding up just a shade below what we consider typical for October. We needed this moisture to get the soil to soak it up before it freezes sometime in November or early December which will help all the plants come spring. Not to mention, parts of the area remain in drought conditions. Below are a few precipitation maps showing how much we saw in the U.S. as a whole and our area along with how far above and below average those numbers were.
