    Residents of the Midwest experienced a swing in temperatures from Septemberlike to Novemberlike over the past two Saturdays.

    Neither of the last two Saturdays in the Midwest felt like October.

    Two Saturdays ago was more reminiscent of a typical September day, while the arrival of colder air had this most recent Saturday feeling like November.

    Between 15 and 25 degrees separated highs recorded on these Saturdays.

    Fort Wayne, Ind., experienced one of the most noticeable change in temperatures between the two days. The city registered a high of 80 degrees on Saturday, Oct. 12, then 53 degrees this past Saturday.

    Highs in the lower 60s are more common in Fort Wayne this time of year.

    As this week progresses, temperatures will not return to the September warmth from two Saturdays ago despite milder temperatures on Sunday from the mid-Mississippi Valley to the lower and eastern Great Lakes.

    Instead, the Novemberlike chill will dominate the week with brisk winds making the air feel even colder and snow making its first appearance of the season in numerous areas.
