I hope you all were able to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather we had this weekend. That beautiful weather will continue right on through this week, though we will see temps get a bit warmer each day. But, all in all October weather is here just in time for, well, October (ha). Highs each day this week should stay in the mid to upper 70s, with cool overnight lows in the low 50s. The humidity will be low each day this week too, so that temp will drop fast when the sun sets.
The tropics have quietened down a bit too, for now. We are keeping an eye on an area of disturbed weather in the extreme southern Gulf of Mexico, but it only has a 20% of developing anything within the next 5 days.
If you want interesting weather you have to go out west. Parts of western Colorado and parts of western Montana are going to be picking up several inches of snow today and tonight. Some places could see up to a foot or more! This is the headline graphic that the National Weather Service put out for western Montana:
Speaking of winter, today is the anniversary of the earliest freeze on record for Crossville. On the morning of October 2, 1974 we dipped to 31 degrees. I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready for that yet! Coincidentally, today is also the anniversary of our hottest October temperature ever recorded. On October 2, 1986 we topped out at 86 toasty degrees. You just never know what you’re going to get here this time of year!
You all have a great day and enjoy the weather this week. It won’t be long before we’ll be talking winter weather…..
