The Capital Weather Gang has predicted that the Washington, D.C.-area is in for what might be its coldest and wettest October in 11 years—so Washingtonians should take advantage of the good days as they come!
“Our most recent cooler-than-normal October was 2015, while our most recent wet October was 2020. But our most recent cool and wet October together was 11 years ago,” the Washington Post article reads.
“With over an inch of rain already, October has experienced a dismally cool start that will be hard to overcome by Halloween,” it adds.
With projections for cooler air and more rain than average, Washingtonians are encouraged to make the most of the crisp sunny days they see so they can enjoy typical autumnal activities, such as hiking, seeing the fall foliage, attending an autumn festival, apple-picking, and perusing pumpkin patches!
