October Update

After recording the coldest start to October, we had a snippet of what we've been missing over the past few days. This week has given us sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s. We've been trying to get in all the outside time we can before these days are long gone.

The National Weather Service STL has updated their records through October 19, and Columbia is still recording the coldest average temperature, while St. Louis is recording the 2nd coldest. View their data here.

After recording 0.05" this morning, our October total tipped the 8" mark. We are currently above the yearly average by 5.89" with 2.5 months to go.

With the past two days of .58" we have finally climbed over our average precip for the month. It's been a while. :)

8" ... Oct has been a soaking for you all.

We're up to 9.5" after yesterday's rain. I talked to a farmer during last night's parent teacher conferences. This rain is really messing up harvest for them. Most of the fields have crops in them still.

Glad to hear you are on the plus side for Oct! I know NW Wisconsin has been needing it badly.

Out here in the semi-desert environment of North Central Washington we are actually getting some dampness! Thus far for October we are at .85” and just the past 24 hours we got nearly a quarter inch. Give a cheer for the Central Washington University football team – they play their home coming game tomorrow (we will be there). The Wildcats are undefeated in their division.

A follow up to the CWU football game - which was really one sided, they won 38-7. First place in Div.II Super Region 4!

Nice! Sounds like it was a good day. Wish I could say the same about our MU team. After a crushing defeat from Texas, I'm afraid the steam is gone from this year's team.

Since we're on the topic of football, there is a "big" game this weekend up in little old Green Bay, WI. :)

Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 46.

It'll be another fine day at Lambeau.

Go Pack! :)
