Outline of weather for the season in the upper Mississippi River basin: Autumn 2013

The season overall can be expected to be somewhat wetter than the summer (which is not saying much, as drought conditions returned by August), and below average in temperature. Most precipitation should fall from late October to early November, followed by two weeks of unseasonably cold weather (near or below historic lows), then a warmup for Thanksgiving (U.S.A.) week. The week of the winter solstice, leading up to Christmas, appears unseasonably cold but dry.

Week by Week

Fourth Quarter: 27 September – 3 October

Primarily dry (a little rain–generally less than a quarter inch–fell 28 September)

New Moon: 4-10 October

Mild, some rain; notable wind

First Quarter: 11-17 October

Some rain, less than expected; sharply colder

Full Moon (Lunar Eclipse): 18-25 October

Mild with some rain, followed by cold and windy conditions

Fourth Quarter: 26 October – 2 November

A wet week, blustery and cold

New Moon (Solar Eclipse): 3-8 November

A sharp break in the pattern, turning unseasonably cold

First Quarter: 9-16 November

Cold records set, first significant snow of the season

Full Moon: 17-24 November

Another sharp break: milder, dry

Fourth Quarter: 25 November – 2 December

Dry, cool

New Moon: 3-9 December

Dry, a little warmer

First Quarter: 10-16 December

Seasonably cool, some snow likely

Full Moon: 17-24 December

Unseasonably cold (close to historic records), dry
