Temperatures will be above normal to start the new month of November. Highs today should climb into the lower 80s. Normal highs during the early part of November should be near 77 degrees. Warm weather is expected to remain through the weekend with more normal temperatures returning early next week.
October finished off slightly cooler and drier here in Lafayette. The average high was 80.9 and the average low was 57.0. For the month we were just a little over a degree cooler than normal. Very dry conditions prevailed with just 0.34" of rain falling at Lafayette Regional Airport. 0.33" fell on the 18th and 0.01" on the 17th. Therefore 29 of 31 days were rain free.
