October Outlook: Will the new month finally bring rain?

Posted at 12:35 AM, Oct 01, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS -- Fall's not officially official until October rolls around and now that the month of pumpkin spice and sweaters is upon us it's time to take a look and see just what it has in store. 

Just like in September, we're all hoping for some needed rainfall.  Indy only managed to pick up .66" of rain last month, making it our fifth driest September on record.  

The October outlook from the Climate Prediction Center doesn't offer much hope for rain, with much of Central Indiana expecting below average rainfall this month.  

Fall is typically pretty dry anyway, with October's average just over three inches.  

We sometimes see a little snow too!  

Our average snowfall for the month is .4 inches but snowflakes this month may be hard to come by with Indiana expected to experience above average temperatures. 

Don't let that fool you though - we're sure to have some cool spells along the way too.
