Weather in October

October is the driest month of the year in Kentucky, with beautiful weather and a colorful landscape. Lakeshores offer brilliant views of the foliage, and orchards are full of ripe apples. Mornings and evenings are particularly pleasant with moderate sunshine and a light breeze.
The average high temperatures are in the range of 66°F (18.9°C) to 71°F (21.7°C), while average low temperatures register between 41°F (5°C) to 49°F (9.4°C) across the state. Nights are on the mild to the cold side, even though the days are warm with ample sunshine.
Peak fall foliage is due statewide by the second half of October. Dogwoods and sumacs turn red and purple, maples and oaks are orange and red, while poplars and hickories display yellow and gold colors. Hiking and camping gather steam, especially in the scenic eastern Kentucky mountains. Festivals are abundant in the fall season, with the harvest season at its peak. October is one of the best times to be in Kentucky.
