Where's October?

October is, historically, our driest month with the long term normal or average precipitation for the while month only 3.05". We may reach that total by the end of the first week as another weak front will increase our rain chance for Wednesday. That front pulls back to the north for Thursday & Friday keeping us summer-like before a stronger front approaches late Friday. That front will likely stall over us with the potential for several inches of rain Friday night thru Sunday. The wet pattern of September appears set to continue well into October. If El Nino continues to strengthen, this wet pattern could last most of the Fall & winter seasons.

No real cold air is expected before the mid part of NEXT week. Yuk!

So a/c and shorts for Christmas? I think I almost would have rather risked hurricanes in a non El Nino year than stay in the soup for the rest of the year (especially if its a warm soup).

I bet this October will be like 2004, that year we had an August cold front much like this year and October was just plan old hot. It wasn't til November that we saw cold air...

I guess there was a bright side to 2004... Snow on Christmas Day.

Bob you talk about seeing patterns in hurricane season...can the same be said about this...
