The month of October may be very similar to September in terms of the weather. The recently issued October Outlook as devised by the Climate Prediction Center indicates ABOVE AVERAGE temperatures for the Heartland with NEAR NORMAL precipitation.

Temperatures last month were warmer than usual with both daily highs and lows averaging from 4° to 6° warmer than normal. In fact, September actually turned out to be the 10th warmest on record for Omaha.

Precitation totals, however, were much closer to normal in September. Omaha averaged 2.72" for the entire month of September which was only 0.04" above the normal.

Similarly, the month of October reflects a warmer than usual weather pattern for the Heartland. Also precipitation amounts for October should be very close to normal as well which means rainfall totals may be close to 2.15" for the month.
