It’s getting colder, darker and windier as we push towards November, but wet flurries already? Yep. Wet flurries remain in the local forecast for the next day or two. A large upper level low is responsible for the unsettled cool conditions leaving us with well below normal temperatures for this time of year.
Normals for October 9 should see temps around plus 12 – today we will be lucky to see plus 7 with gusty north west winds. The same for tomorrow. The good news of course is the wet flurries won’t stick. There will be off and on cool showers however.
We start to rebound back to normal values this weekend only to see rain move back in for Thanksgiving Monday. The lowest temperature recorded for October 9th in the Sault was a bone chilling -5.7 in 1947
The warmest ever October 9th was just a few years ago in 2011 with a high of 25.9c Have we seen snow before on this date? yes we have, it was in 1993 when 3.6cm fell, but it didn’t stick around.
