Cold Halloween?October 15th, 2012 at 2:08 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Click on the image to enlarge. OK, it’s the GFS and the GFS is notorious for bringing down the cold too soon and too strong in Autumn…but…it this is right…it’ll be a cool Halloween. The GFS brings snow showers to the area around the 25th – and this is an even colder shot with the likelihood of lake-effect snow showers and temperatures probably in the 30s. We’re 2 1/2 degrees cooler than average for October, and it doesn’t look like we can make that up. This could be the coolest month relative to average across the Great Lakes in over a year. ALSO: The coldest Halloween in G.R. was in 1988, the same year that we had a record 37 days of 90-degree heat.
