At the beginning of October, temperatures, while cooler than September, were still quite a bit warmer than average. With the mercury reaching 21.6° on the 19th, it seemed like the mild fall would last quite a bit longer. That would all change, though, a week later as we got our first true dose of winter as temperatures dropped below freezing, and snow fell on Weyburn, along with the rest of the province.  

Despite the warm start, and the rather frigid finish, October turned out to be a rather normal month, when compared to the 30-year averages compiled by Environment Canada. The average daytime high last month was 10.6°, and the average overnight low was -0.7°. The 30-year average? The daytime high is 11.4°, and the overnight low is -1.3°. 

Precipitation was also quite on par for the month, however, that came primarily in one shot. On October 3rd, Weyburn received 14.5 millimetres of rain. Along with the snow that we received in the final week of the month, the total precipitation for the city was 24.3 millimetres, just over the 30-year average of 24.2 millimetres.  

What does this mean as we head into November? 

The 30-year average for the daytime high in November is 0.8°, with an average overnight low of -9.1°. This may seem like quite a drop from October, but it is what we have been experiencing for much of the past few days. The mercury, though, is expected to climb back up toward the freezing mark, and possibly get onto the positive side, over the course of the weekend.
