While we were basking in sunshine and temperatures in the upper 60s to near 70°, parts of the northeast saw an October Snow.
That photo was courtesy of NWS Burlington in Vermont. As much as 3 to 5 inches of snow is expected, especially in higher elevations, in New York, Vermont and New Hampshire.
Closer to home here in Iowa, we had October snow…just 3 years ago. In fact, one inch accumulated in Waterloo.
We are now toward the end of October, where high temperatures should normally be in the upper 50s to near 60°. That wasn’t the case today.
There’s a good chance that the warmer than normal (or near normal) temperatures will continue through the end of the month.
The Orionid Meteor Shower continues, even through the peak was October 21st. Look in the southeast sky for a few meteors through November 7th. Click here to learn more.
