Will November Be As Quiet As October?

All in all, October was really a quiet weather month for the entire country.

We had a few strong cold fronts move through that brought a taste of what is to come.

There was some October snow, mostly in either the northern Rockies or New England.

We also saw just a little bit of severe weather in the central states, but nothing like what some October's have brought.

So what does this mean? Will the bottom drop out as we head into November?

It's anybody's guess -- but I can tell you we will see the weather pattern become a little more active, at least for the northwest and northern tier of states over the next 5-7 days.

The current national hazard outlook is calling for heavy rain and snow across eastern Wyoming, Montana, and the Dakotas around the middle of next week.

Heavy rain is also forecast for the Pacific Northwest.

This will all be courtesy of a few storm systems moving in from the Pacific.

I know here in the Denver area, November is typically our cloudiest month of the year as we see frequent storm systems moving across the state this time of year.

It will be fun to watch and see how all this plays out.

If you have a thought or opinion on the subject, feel free to leave a comment for everyone to see.

    I live in Middle Tennessee and we saw our first October snow since 1993. Seems like this could be an indication that we could have a colder and wetter than normal winter. I'll be keeping up with the happenings via my weather blog at

    Appreciate your work on maintaining the COCORAHS blog....
