As we get ready to call it quits on the month of September and look ahead to October if you are hoping for crisp autumn weather you might be a bit disappointed.

Looking ahead to the next 30 or so days, it looks like you might have to leave the heavy sweaters and winter jackets in the closet for now.

According to the National Weather Service's long-term outlook, it looks like October will be a bit milder than normal.

For much of the state, the average high temperature is around 60 degrees and the lows are around 45.

The long-term forecast is calling for high temperatures in the upper 60s with lows in the 50s. So you are looking for a jump around 5-10 degrees over normal. As for some places, it looks like you could have Spring-like days.

In the middle of the month, we could see the high temperatures reaching into the lower to mid-70s which is pretty unusual in October.

So will those above-average temperatures last for the entire month and maybe extend into November? Looking at the end of October it looks like the high temperatures will take a sharp drop and we could see the highs in the low 50 and upper 40s. It looks like those chilly high temperatures will stay in New York for much of November.

According to the long-term forecast, November will start in the 40s and pretty much stay there.

So you might not need those heavy sweaters and winter jackets for much of October, but you might consider a Halloween costume that can be worn over a winter jacket.
