First half of the month looks like a torch overall around here... Should build a fairly formidable positive departure through the 15th.

Even with the ULL meandering around the SE next week, should still see average to above average temps around here. Beyond that, ENS have been coming more onboard the past several days regarding another push of warmer temperatures somewhere in the 8-14th timeframe.

-PNA is slowly starting to develop, becoming more - with time. ENS support is high for a continuation through mid month, which supports the overall mild idea expected to continue.

Just remember most early cold Octobers end up being lousy winters for snow, so I am very happy to see a warm early October. 07/10/17 immediately come to mind

Plus early cold Octobers are pretty useless.

Also wasn’t there significant snow in late April up there this year? If anything you’re all owed a little more nice weather lol

Not a drop of rain with the scattered weather around here. Maybe later tonight.

Since weather is so warm, might be a good time to pull this out so everyone can see how hot it has been in the past. Definitely teasing, if not breaking, some of these coming up.

Ash trees have been slowly turning here for a couple weeks. Probably muted colors this year with the drought hangover and late warmth.

Looking forward to a few downpours later, if everything goes right.

I'm surprised you have any healthy ash trees left down there. The emerald ash borer wiped out almost all of them  in Michigan in the past 10 years.

A little toy train must have set up bisecting the county southwest to northeast last night with me in the center getting 0.90" in the tippy bucket so far.  Agrees well with the radar estimates out of KIND. Now to see if we add anything meaningful on the backside of the system.

Chicago has a program in place to treat what they estimate to be 85,000 ash trees on public property. You can even report suspected infections on the city's 311 site. That pic was on a boulevard w/ ~20 of them, all treated, tagged and healthy. In some ways I guess it's easier to take care of them in a city than in large, rural groves.

My dad has saved a few on his property in southern IN, as they're one of his favorites.

Out here in the suburbs there are still some scattered about, but a majority are gone.

Yeah have seen a lot of dead/dying ash trees around here as well the past few years.  The neighbors next door lost theirs this year.  

The sugar maples are turning pretty nicely already out this way.  The one I planted last fall is starting to show color as well.

Ended up getting hit by a tiny isolated thunderstorm last evening, dropped a quick 0.36" which was great to see.

The two big ash trees in my yard were ~50 years old and crumbled apart on their own several+ years ago.

The latest models are looking a little better mid month... certainly more dynamic with potential for strong lows ejecting out of the western US.

A majority of public ash trees are dead/dying around here but many on private property have been inoculated, and are thriving. 
 

October looks like an extension of summer this year. Although I'm sure we will see an abrupt swing towards the end of the month. I’ve lived in Minneapolis for 6 years and all but one has produced accumulating snow in October.
