Anyone been looking at the ridiculous cold in much of the western US? Look at El paso 

 - highs of 3C today, 24C below average for October!
 

Denver has also been ridiculously cold with lows of -12C.

I'd hate to be a thermostat, in a house shared by @markyo and @Azazel!

Today I spent a lot of time studying IOD. I was working out the relationship between IOD, ENSO and MJO.  There is a connnection between IOD and ENSO, mostly during strong events. During weak La Nina I

I've lost my excitement for the heat this year. Not looking forward to the +30°c later this week. I find myself daydreaming about eating toffee apples in the evening while wrapped up snug in temp

What an utter blighter of a day out there again. Soaking cold rot. It'll probably be sunnier and drier in January. Just like last October this. Rain, rain, rain and persistently cold throughout - boring drivel. ANYTHING else would be better! Even snow!

I think last October was colder wasn't it?

First post this october has been very average in every way temperatures wind and rainfall although I just had to take a look at that its been surprisingly wetter that what it seems but theres been no floods this season yet after the crazy wet autumn it was last year.

As for halloween it does look very mild and pretty wet I hope not.

From my stats, 1st-27th October 2019 averaged 9.9°C. 1st-27th October 2020 has averaged 9.8°C.

The last few days brought down the average last year, but there are two mild days coming this year so it will end up slightly milder in the end, but there's little in it.

159.4mm here so far this month which isn't quite as much as many have had but it's still easily the wettest month I've recorded.

Its going to end up being one of those Octobers that no-one will remember, its been devoid of anything notably interesting, thankfully no major storms, nothing especially mild or cold, though will end on a very mild note but not that unusual. Yes there has been some heavy rain in places more so NW Scotland and the next few days could bring localised flooding, but thankfully we are not in record breaking territory or anywhere near it.

Temperature wise the cooler first part to the month will be cancelled out by a much milder latter end.

Not much frost or fog, and pretty dull.

Move on October 2020..

I notice there's quite a lot of rain forecast for Western and North Western areas. What's it look like for the Calder Valley in particular regarding flood risk? Thanks

Ah far from it my wettest month I’ve ever recorded in my central part of London record breaking, never known anything like it puts early 2014 to shame here.

Today was quite decent actually. Quite a pleasant, soft glow from the sun showing off those red-orange hues quite starkly; sunny weather not really being an experience we've had much of over this past month!

Yes not a bad day overall, chill in the air and some brief sunny spells inbetween the short lived heavy showers. Suspect by Sunday most of the leaves will be stripped bare, here given the upcoming heavy rains and wind..

The Lime trees down my street are almost bare, but there's one tree in my front garden that still has a full compliment of almost completely green leaves still, and they don't completely disappear until early December.

I really hope we get a beast from the east this winter, last two winters here had absolutely zero snow at all.... first two in a row that was the case. We do well here out of easterlies.

Another dismal wet day here, such a depressing month in every aspect. The wettest month I have recorded was February this year, only started my weather station 3 years ago though. Be interesting to see if this month will beat it.

I’ve only got 4 years of data and this month has easily beaten the previous wettest month. In fact it had already beaten the previous record by mid month with plenty more rain since then.

Well October was a pile of crap in my part of Sussex. Rain rain rain rain rain dull dull dull dull dull. Another month with several 12-24 hour rainfests and lights-on-all-day days. To make it even more crap, the weekend wet weather bias seems to be kicking in, this is going to be the third consecutive weekend being mostly wet or at least very unsettled, with Sunday looking to be another full day of rain. It has gone like last year, roaring zonality with almost no high pressure. Sadly November looks to be starting in a similar manner, having the sunny days in the week when I am working ☹️. The final clearing up on the allotment will have to wait a bit longer. What makes it worse it wee might have another four months of this if we have another +ve AO/NAO dominated winter, just what I need to look forward too when faced with the prospect of not being able to visit my family over Christmas.

I would say that the rainfall for this month (in my neck of the woods anyway) has been fairly close to average. It probably only feels like it's been a particularly wet month because we haven't really had many noticeably wet days since February. Spring was remarkably dry, summer was dry most of the time, and September was rather dry.

Still around only 71mm in Dublin (not counting today's light rainfalls) which is below the October average of 79mm and October is the wettest month of the year on average. 

On 111.2 hrs of sun, it has been sunnier than both July and August. Only in Ireland is a (relatively) late autumn month sunnier than high summer... hasn't been exceptionally sunny either by any means. October 2018 and 2019 were both sunnier. 

Judging by this sunshine map, Ireland has certainly gotten on better this October than the UK! Not often it is twice as sunny here as London 😂

Certainly looks like this October could be the wettest since 2000 here by the end of the month, as it'll no doubt surpass last year.
