And what do we expect?
Well Arleen is the expert and this is what she says…
Keeping in the spirit of the last 4 months, the first half of October will be wet. We’ll start the month with a little more precip than average and then dry out the second half of the month as La Nina keeps the polar front jet and more active weather to our north. We should see a couple of snow flakes as cool air wraps around these lows as they move through. Below average snow will fall in the high country. We’ll definitely see our first widespread freezing temperatures. Transition season is tricky – we’ll monitor closely!
