ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – It’s finally October and that means that there are only two more months left in the year once October is over. Before we get too ahead of ourselves, let’s just look at the difference between the weather at the beginning of October and the end of October. The average high temperature on October 2nd is 65 degrees while the average high on October 31st is 50 degrees. The average low on October 2nd is 44 degrees while the average low on October 31st is 32 degrees. From the beginning of October to the end, we will lose around 90 minutes of daylight, with the sunrise at the end of the month at 7:45AM and the sunset at 6:01PM. At the beginning of October, it’s not common for Rochester to receive snow, but at the end of October, that’s a different story with an average of 0.1″ of snow falling on October 31st.
