Weather in October

October has cooler temperatures and highlights brilliant fall colors in Montana as many trees like the western larch are in full glory. It is one of the best times to visit Montana with beautiful weather, refreshing nature, abundant wildlife, and the call of the fishing and hunting seasons. Average high temperatures are in the range of 55°F (12.8°C) to 60°F (15.6°C), while average low temperatures register around 25°F (-3.9°C) to 40°F (4.4°C) across the state.
Rain is negligible, but snow is present in small quantities in most of the state.
October is the perfect time to visit Glacier National Park after the wildfire season is over during the summer and the return of most of the tourists. Early October is usually elk spotting season, and it is common to view a group of 500 in the Slippery Ann Elk Viewing Area to the north of Missouri. Hats, gloves, and jackets are usually better to wear in fall than shorts and t-shirts of summer.
