Just a little this morning. The back deck is slippery from the moisture and ice. Made it down to 33F at house and 34F at Wx station 1/2 mile east.
Shingles have a light layer so not a killing freeze.

S word in our forecast next week. Probably will change. That's a long ways out for accuracy.

Summer's end has been a bit abrupt in many areas.

I flipped my heat pump thermostat over to heat only now and shut the sprinklers off.  I wish I had a gas furnace instead of heat pump.
I'm still dumbfounded with their choice (previous owner) of a brand new air heat pump with electric secondary heat vs gas propane. The house was completely redone inside and out so hate to add the expense of a gas furnace and 500-gallon tank on a brand new Lennox air handler.
The cost wouldn't get recovered for years especially since the house would need gas lines brought inside about 3k, furnace 3k, tank 1k so about 7k total.

Early season nor'easter bearing down on my area. Always fun when the NWS discussion uses phrases like "Anomalous ocean storm", "a
firehose of moisture inflow", "a significant long duration wind event", and "We need to expect the unexpected".

At least it's the type of wet stuff that doesn't have to melt...

I noticed the North Platte forecast discussion called this storm "The Great October Storm 2019".    :grin:

Snow should be ending overnight Thursday with a major storm
centered over ern ND Friday morning. This would present a slight
chance of wrap around snow across nrn Nebraska Friday. The
forecast is dry Friday night through Tuesday. The great October
storm of 2019
will lift very slowly toward Hudson Bay this weekend
and early next week. This should pull two significant high
pressure systems down from Canada. The temperature forecast Friday
through Tuesday is for below average temperatures with
subfreezing lows each night.

Randy, a reminder to me that memory is not always accurate when it comes to past weather. Case in point, I though this killing freeze we have coming tomorrow was really early for us in N KS. Checked my records and discovered that a year ago on 15 Oct, a week later than now, we had accumulating snow and temps in the teens.

Termination time for the petunias here.

Agree, I think many forget the small details me included without going back and looking at records. Our first freeze date hasn't fluctuated that much.
Airport actually froze several days earlier this year on Oct. 3rd. 
Average up here has been coming in on the 8th. The latest was 2015 Oct 16, earliest Oct 4 but airport has been earlier.

Edit: This is limited history only goes back to 2014.

Thursday night, storm caught doing the Stillwater split as it approaches Stillwater, so only sprinkles here.  Storm was unusual for forming well behind a cold front that passed through around 11 am with a light shower.   As experienced in states to the north, cold front here is unusually cold for time of season.  Lows Sat. expected to be around 30-32.  Normally freezing lows don't happen until around Nov. 1.

For an update,  the little thundershower behind the split storm stayed together and came through to the tune of 05" of rain.  A couple of rural locations to the south and southeast did better with .11" and .15". They likely benefited from the south portion of the split storm.   Freeze watch in effect until Saturday at 9 am.

October's Bright Blue Weather

Our low this morning is 18. The forecast for the next few days reminded me of the poem we 7th grade students had to memorize way, way back in 1958 in Virginia.

I live in Kansas, but the poem is still right on.

Nice country you live in there around Datil. I was through there in August. Empty, wide open, and rugged in places. I was impressed by it.

Do you do your heavy shopping in Pie Town?   :-)

Nah, we drive all the way down to Socorro. They have a Walmart !  :grin:
For really big non mainstream stuff we drive all the way up to Albuquerque.

Amazon is our friend out here.    [tup]

32.1 this morning here for the lowest low, so far, this season and just .1 degree off from even freezing.  Close to half of Stillwater WU reporting stations stayed above freezing.

Meanwhile, From 83 To 13: That Was The Second Largest Temperature Change On Record In Denver!

Winds have been relentless last 3 days so no super-low temperatures. 21f at my station,  20f at the airport. Ended up with 1.5" of snow most gone today.
