The seasonal transitions will come into play as we exit October and slide into November. Certain areas of the United States will experienced examples of winter weather while other sections, such as Texas, could experience damaging floods. Episodes of frost will become more prevalent in the northeast and central portions of the United States,  An extended period of dry, warm days, following a frost is common and also describes "Indian Summer."  In Europe, this same weather pattern is called Old Wives’ summer, Halcyion days, St. Martin’s summer, St. Luke’s summer and All-hallown summer.  There are years when Indian Summer doesn’t occur while numerous episodes have been reported in other years. My weather diary included an e-mail received from Marsha Reichle, a few years ago, where she noted that the reason it is called Indian Summer is because it is traditionally followed by... (OK HERE IT COMES) "Apache Fog."
