Weather in October

October brings pleasant temperatures and beautiful colors to Missouri in the middle of the autumn season. The fall foliage is at its peak, and the vibrant colors range from orange and red to yellow and golden. The end of the harvest season is a time for festivities in the mild autumn weather. An odd year may see the first snowflakes in the state by the last week of October.
The average high temperatures are in the perfect range of 65°F (18.3°C) to 70°F (21.1°C), while the nights are slightly cold with the average temperatures in the 40°F (4.4°C) to 45°F (7.2°C) zone. Columbia in the center averages between 47°F (8.3°C) to 68°F (20°C), while Ozark Beach in the north registers between 45°F (7.2°C) to 70°F (21.1°C).
The rainfall rarely exceeds 4" (102mm) as the daily sunshine lasts for 7 hours. Wear a jacket or sweater during the windy fall evenings. Go for a scenic drive with the wind in the face. Mark Twain National Forest in southeastern Missouri is perfect for a fall foliage tour in October.
