Temperatures are forecast to trend warmer than last year for the U.S. as a whole. However, the Southeast may see some cooler trends compared to last year. There is high confidence that the Great Lakes, New England, and South Central states will trend warmer than last year. Onshore flow in the West will bring milder and wetter weather to the region.  A more pronounced flow of moisture will bring more snow to the West Coast mountain ranges. At least one storm will eject out of the southern Rocky Mountains spreading a swath of snow from New Mexico to the Great Lakes and New England.

The month will begin with warm weather across much of the nation and that will continue into the Columbus Day weekend in the East before turning cooler. The Northwest region will trend wetter than last year, but it still remains drier than normal, while the Southwest will be wetter than last year and normal.

An increased risk of an emerging El Nino and a continuation of warmer than normal ocean waters in the Atlantic will produce warmer and wetter conditions along the East Coast along with an elevated tropical system risk. The total number of tropical systems will be reduced overall, but should a storm threaten the U.S., the East Coast would be at highest risk. Much cooler weather will be common across the Plains with increased rainfall east of the Rockies.
