I just seen a dust devil. Why is there always dust devils in the fall time more then other times of the year or is it just easier to see them with the leaves ect in the fall? I have seen some in the spring before too but its like in the fall i see them daily almost (if im watching outside a lot).

91 in Minneapolis right now! Is that not a record or close to it?

The ridge is well-defined on this vector map. Hoping it gets here by the end of September

Not very often you see a QPF forecast like this for such a large area of the eastern U.S.:



NO rain at all for the next 7 days.

I look at their NWS website and Minneapolis has actually been 90F in October before. Although this is not common for them it isn't something that is historic or wow!! that has never happened before.

It should be noted that last fall had a similar warm spell in late September as well although hopefully that is the only similarity between this fall and last fall.

While unlikely in middle and western Tennessee, I'm concerned about drought once again rearing its ugly head over here in parts of eastern Tennessee.  We haven't had a good rain since 9/6 (in the foothills area), and after a week of dry heat, the next front bringing the cool, dry air offers little hope of precipitation on current model runs.  The top soil is already becoming dry (I found out while planting a new dogwood), so after another week of no rain, we'll definitely be entering the "abnormally dry" phase of drought development.  We haven't had nearly the amount of rain here as other areas of eastern Tennessee, and completely missed any significant rain with Irma thanks to downsloping winds over the mountains.  Considering October is normally our driest month, that's not good news in the short term.  Hopefully, November will bring "normal" precipitation, unlike last year.

12Z GFS has frost worthy low temperatures in parts of the eastern Tennessee valley by 10/1.
