I came across a little book recently - Signpost to the weather by D&K Barlett. First published in 1949, I have extracted their forecasts for each month of the year. I hope you will enjoy their theories over the next few months -
The Month of October according to D&K Barlett with BASS indications by Jim Hendrick
The temperatures now begin to fall more quickly than in any month of the year, although there can often be a late fine warm spell of several days. The nights will be noticeably cooler. The first frosts are more likely inland.
The depressons over the Atlantic are deeper and a greater deal of wind can be expected, but there are not usually more than one or two severe gales.
The good spell, if prolonged delays the autumn change into November. and this, of recent years has often occurred.
The sea remains quite warm but the land surfaces cool quickly, and some fog and mists can be experienced in many areas.
The weeks of October
1st to 7th - Fair, cloudy days at first becoming more changeable with a little rain later in the week
8th to 15th - Usuall there is cloudy weather with light rain intermingled with fair days
16th to 23rd - A calm, fair and quite warm period can occur during this part of the month
24th to 31st - During this week the weather becomes more unsettled fair days will bring frost but rather changeable
Bass fishing - Arguably one the best month of the year for bass fishing, opportunities for great fishing.
