Weather in October
is temperate in Indiana
and the period of peak fall foliage. The woods are colorful, and the lake shores offer beautiful views of the foliage. Local orchards are full of ripe apples, and abundant pumpkin patches dot the lands. The harvest season results in a bountiful of agricultural produce, especially in the central parts where the soil quality is superior.
The average high temperatures are in the range of 61°F (16.1°C) to 70°F (21.1°C), while average low temperatures register between 39°F (3.9°C) to 50°F (10°C) across the state. Precipitation is low, but an unusually cold year may bring the first snowflakes in the north. Although the daylight and sunshine are ample, the nights tend to be cold.
Peak fall foliage colors display throughout Indiana by the fourth week of October. Get lost in a corn maze along with friends and family, and enjoy the thrill of finding the way out at sunset. October is the last month of mild weather in Indiana.
