...A SLIGHTLY WARM BUT WET OCTOBER IN SOUTH BEND AREA...

THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE WAS JUST SLIGHTLY WARMER THAN NORMAL
IN THE SOUTH BEND AREA BUT PRECIPITATION WAS WELL ABOVE NORMAL. AS
WITH MANY OCTOBER MONTHS...TEMPERATURES FLUCTUATED SIGNIFICANTLY
WITH HIGHS RANGING FROM THE UPPER 70S TO MIDDLE 40S AND LOW
TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM THE LOWER 60S TO LOWER 30S. THE MONTH
ENDED WITH THE FIRST MEASURABLE SNOWFALL OF THE SEASON ON HALLOWEEN.

THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE AT SOUTH BEND WAS 52.4
DEGREES...JUST 0.3 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 50TH
COOLEST OCTOBER ON RECORD DATING BACK TO 1894. THE HIGHEST
TEMPERATURE WAS 77 ON THE 2ND AND THE COLDEST TEMPERATURE WAS 30 ON
THE 22ND AND 23RD. THE DAILY AVERAGE TEMPERATURE WAS BELOW NORMAL ON
16 DAYS AND ONLY ONE DAY...THE 4TH...HAD AN AVERAGE TEMPERATURE MORE
THAN 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL (13 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL). THERE WERE FOUR
DAYS WITH AN AVERAGE DAILY TEMPERATURE OF TEN OR MORE DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL. THE 27TH WAS THE WARMEST DAY WITH REGARDS TO DEPARTURE FROM
NORMAL AS THE AVERAGE DAILY TEMPERATURE ON THIS DAY WAS 13 DEGREES
ABOVE NORMAL.

PRECIPITATION FOR THE MONTH WAS 5.68 INCHES...2.36 INCHES ABOVE
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 10TH WETTEST OCTOBER ON RECORD.
MEASURABLE PRECIPITATION FELL ON 14 DAYS AND 2 DAYS HAD MORE THAN AN
INCH OF PRECIPITATION...THE SECOND AND THE THIRD OF THE MONTH. AS A
MATTER OF FACT...3.83 INCHES OF RAIN FELL ON THESE TWO DAYS. THAT
WAS NEARLY 70 PERCENT OF THE MONTHLY TOTAL.

THE MONTH ENDED WITH A STRONG COLD FRONT BLASTING THROUGH THE
REGION. TEMPERATURES FELL FROM THE 40S INTO THE 30S ON HALLOWEEN
DAY. RAIN SHOWERS TURNED TO SNOW SHOWERS WITH SEVERAL LOCATIONS
RECEIVING THEIR FIRST MEASURABLE SNOWFALL OF THE SEASON. AMOUNTS
