Something for Everyone
The first full week of October will bring a wide variety of weather to the USA as seasons change.
We foresee some very warm weather in the eastern USA, another shot of cold and snow for the Rockies and even the Northern Plains, we may also see some tropical storm activity along the Gulf Coast in the next week to ten days.
So, we may have just about a little of everything as we go through the first third of October. Stock growers in the Rockies, Dakotas and Upper Midwest should be prepared for a significant shot of cold, rain and likely snow by the end of this week and into the start of the weekend.
6 to 10 Day Temperature Outlook
Stressful livestock conditions may develop across Montana, Wyoming and perhaps into northern Colorado and Utah by late Thursday through Friday as wet, windy and cold conditions will likely develop as a strong storm dives southeast into the region. Snow levels could be down to 5000 feet in some areas of the Central and Northern Rockies by Friday.
As the storm shifts east over the weekend rain/snow and falling temperatures will push east across the Dakotas, Nebraska and into Minnesota. Snow could fall as for south as South Dakota and into Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Very warm temperatures are likely to be found ahead of the storm system across the Great Lakes, Northeast and East Coast areas.
Across the Gulf Coast states, we may see some tropical storm activity by the weekend bringing the threat of heavy rain along the Gulf Coast and far southeastern states.
Another storm system may bring the threat of frost/freeze conditions to portions of the Corn Belt between October 9th through October 12th.
The month of October may have some surprises to come, so stay tuned!
