As madrilean, I can tell you that the month of October can vary significantly depending on the year. Earlier this month tends to moderate temperatures, and even hot. Here we call "The little summer of Sant Michael" by the saint in the Catholic calendar matches during those days. And also true, if it is a rainy early fall tends to rain a lot but not too cold. In Spain for its Mediterranean climate call this weather phenomenon as the "Cold Drop", with very heavy downpours, hail and storms like your American Midwest. But if the year is very dry weather.
Throughout the month and by the day, begins to cooler. Finally after November is approaching and so the winter.
I hope I helped.
