October Mild

If you thought October was a mild month, you would definitely be correct.  Although, it did not finish in the Top 10, it was the 12th warmest October on record in Fargo.  In Grand Forks it ranked as the 10th and in Bismarck, the 9th warmest on record.   Normally, warm October make for great harvest weather, but last month tended to be wet, slowing the harvest down in many areas, plus, the early October warmth put a halt to the sugar beet harvest until the temperatures cooled down.  In turn, as I have mentioned in this segment before, it is tough to have a perfect weather for a harvest, but October 2021 was at least better than some recent ones.
