The first October weekend in Connecticut and the region sets up to be a terrific one, weather wise, according to meteorologist Brad Field. After some sporadic rain on Friday, Oct. 2, the weather turns delightful for Oct. 3 and 4. After the weekend concludes, however, Monday, Oct. 5 could lead to a rain event, according to Field, who details the forecast in his weekly podcast with co-host Dan Lovallo.
After reviewing the September weather numbers, Field details what October may look like in his “Crystal Ball” weather segment. For example, could we get an October surprise snowstorm as we did nine years ago?
The forces have to align correctly for an October surprise, Field notes, but that doesn’t stop him for examining AccuWeather’s long-range winter forecast. Field also announces when he will issue his popular winter forecast on the podcast.
