They average 53 / 33 F (12 / 1 C) in October but with all that snow on the ground and the jet stream pattern as it is with the Ω block there's no way they're going to average that warm this October. Maybe something like 45-47 F / 7-8 C for an average high and 25-27 F / -4 to -3 C for a low, maybe even colder than that. There could be snow on the ground all October if there's another snow or two later in the month.

So many records, I'm overwhelmed.

There's never been a 4 day stretch where the Avg temp was below freezing in September there until now.. (records since 1937). If you include their previous location 1934 & 1926 had.

Nice summary here with snowfall totals. Link goes bad after some years so I'll post some of the totals...

Wow, that's a part of the country I could never fathom living in. It takes a hardy soul to live there.

Even the Midwest, though it could be harsher mid January in say Minneapolis, at least they have a respectable September and October. The Upper Basin/Intermountain West just seems to get very harsh weather. Sub-zero winters and summers above 100.

Desert Southwest is cooler than normal too. Only 91 in Phoenix, they have been consistently cooler than Austin, but they are heading back up to the upper 90's when this storm leaves.

You forgot the best part : Mosquitos.


Those are one hardy suckers. Around Great Falls, they would somehow survive often till October.


Natural selection at its best
