Snow and Temperature Fluctuations Headline October 2022 – Will November Bring More of Them?

FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) – October 2022 has come to an end and you may remember the month for some wintry weather… Overall, the month was characterized by temperature fluctuations and not much precipitation.

Despite all the temperature fluctuations, we ended the month just below average in terms of the average temperature in Fort Wayne. We’ve seen some days in the 70’s and some days in the 40’s. The clearest temperature fluctuation took place in the middle of the month. We saw a high of 42 degrees on the 18th and then climbed to a high of 78 degrees by the 22nd. It was quite unusual to see our lowest and highest temperature in the same week.

Also noteworthy was the fact that we did not experience a hard frost in October. Our lowest temperature was 29 degrees on October 20th, which means we got just under the 28 degree hard freeze threshold. We have to wait for our first hard frost in November.

What can we expect this November? We can examine the Climate Prediction Center’s monthly forecasts for clues. Chances are that the above-average temperature trend will continue, which will definitely be the case at the beginning of the month. As for precipitation, we will be hopeful that our dry-than-average trend will continue, but overall confidence is slightly lower. We are hoping for a little more rain as we closely monitor the drought situation and its impact.
