Fall has arrived early for the Northeast (Fall officially starts September 22nd at 10:29pm) and temperatures don’t look to rebound over the next several weeks. If you are a big fan of the cool & crisp air, then you are going to enjoy the month of September. As seen above, the long range model (Climate Forecast System Version 2 “CFSv2″) shows the entire Northeast will be below average temperatures through the heart of September. However, as I mentioned in a previous post back on September 1st, I was looking at the potential of warm-up to close out September and into October.
As I mentioned many weeks ago, Fall would be making an early entrance with temperatures staying at or below normal for the first half of September. The vast majority of you are rather happy to see the cooler weather arrive and it looks like the fall like temperatures will carry-on through this week as well.
Earlier in the week, I said the weekend was looking a little iffy with a cold front that will be pushing through on Saturday. Things are looking a tad better with the timing of the cold front for your weekend plans…
Today marks the first day of Meteorological Fall, which runs from September 1st – November 30th. The Astronomical first day of Fall, which all of your calendars go by starts September 22nd. If you’ve been outside recently, it feels like the first week of August with the heat & humidity. Most of the Summer, it has been relatively cool but Summer decided it wasn’t going out without one more hot stretch. If you remember my post back on August 15th (Summer Returns Late), I stated models were pointing out a warmer solution for the end of August through mid September. So far, it has panned out nicely on what I said weeks ago. After the weekly forecast, I’ll see what the rest of September may have in-store for us.
