First few days look nicely cool, very unlike last year (upper 90s to start the month).

It seems like a long time since October felt like October. Once the rain clears out today it looks like we've got a long stretch of absolutely beautiful fall weather. Sometimes it's the little things that make us happy  ::yum::  ;D  ::yum::

Saw the first frost of the year this morning! You had to look real close, but it was there in a couple of the low lying ditches. Lots of readings in the 30s in rural west and middle TN on the 5:00 and 6:00 obs.

*Last year on this date the high was 99 in Nashville.  ::hot::

Hit 41 here in NW TN, almost to the point where the heat had to come on in the truck and the windows had to be rolled up, but not quite yet.

I think fall foliage is still in good shape. We have perfect weather for the next 7-10 days; cool nights and warm days. We do need to avoid any hybrid system action around October 10-12. Fingers crossed no wet and windy.

Then the weather pattern looks still fairly dry on the ECMWF weeklies much of October. Weak fronts and scattered showers are not show stoppers. Just can't have a bowling ball come up with mountain wave winds. Barring a strange hybrid system, I like the outlook for colorful leaves.

The temperature dropped to 36F in the creek bed (39F at the house).  Definitely the chilliest we have seen out here since the first week of May.  Time to break out the Halloween inflatables.  ::guitar::

The creek bed chilled to 34F last night (37F at the house).  There was a good amount of slushy frost on the grass.  Mowing season is almost over. 

This weather is too perfect not to be outside.  We are headed to the sorghum festival at Muddy Pond up on the plateau today.  ::bacon::
