             the Nebraska panhandle with amounts from ½ to 1 inch common. 1.30 inches
             was reported near Sidney.  
 
Oct 2: Today is the latest day in fall in which no snow has been recorded in Laramie,
            Wyoming. Snow has fallen there for the rest of the year every day some time

            Today has been the average first day in fall for Cheyenne to receive measurable
            snow over the last 30 years.
 
Oct 3: Summertime heat was felt in Scottsbluff on this day in 1906 when the temperature
             topped out at 93 degrees, the warmest October temperature on record for
             Scottsbluff.
 
Oct 4-5: An early season blizzard struck much of Converse and Niobrara counties on
             these days in 1998. 8 to 12 inches of heavy, wet snow fell from late on the 4th into
             the 5th over many areas. This combined with 40 mph winds snapped about 200
             power poles and left about 4000 people without power in Lusk and Manville for up
             to 5 days.  
 
Oct 6:  An early season winter storm began to spread across parts of southeast Wyoming on
             this day in 1970. By the end of the day 9.0 inches had fallen in Douglas.  
  
Oct 7:  The 1970 winter storm brought 11.0 inches of snow near Wheatland and a total of
             8.0 inches of snow to Scottsbluff. It also resulted in Scottsbluff setting a high of
             only 32 degrees, the earliest day in fall with a high temperature at or below freezing.
 
             Another winter storm struck this area on this day in 1990, producing the greatest
             daily snowfall for October in Cheyenne and Scottsbluff, with 7.9 and 6.4 inches,
             respectively.
