Fall 2016

It's September and climatological.  Where's the thread?  Here it is. 

Be on the lookout for falling leaves and falling temps soon.

(Even as it continues to feel summer like in the near term)

Even with the heat sticking around I've felt a more frequent breeze and hints that fall is on the way to break us out of the 90s (eventually).  We've had the longest stretch of high heat and high humidity I can remember in a long time and I'm more ready than usual for fall weather to get to us.

It's inevitable. Climb will take over in the next 3 weeks at some point. Can't wait for highs in the low 70's and lows in the 40's for awhile.

Been on the west coast the last week (coming back today).  It's amazing how much the Pacific cools things along the coast.  Here at Carpinteria, CA, just down from Santa Barbara, it's been in the 60s to near 70 each day with lows in the 50s.  So, I've gotten primed for fall.  Cross over the mountains into the Central Valley, and it's in the 90s each day.

Was out at Fall Creek Falls last weekend.  Just starting to see a few leaves changing color.  It is almost upon us.

While its still been pretty warm during the afternoons, if you are outside much at daylight or dark you can feel fall coming.  The dry weather combined with the much lower humidity is nice.

We visited WA and OR from 8/24 to 8/29.  Was my first time to the Pacific NW, and WOW...but that's off the subject.   They actually had record heat when I first arrived (90s) but settled into the 70s and 80s after a couple of days.  Very dry time of year there, so no precip with the frontal passage.  We escaped the hottest days by hitting the coast and mountains.  Coming back to 70+ DPs was not the best welcome home.

It's been easier to cool the house with the cooler/longer nights and change in the sun angle even with temps in the 90s, but still, enough already.

When will this end?  I look at the forecast and it's ridiculous.   At this rate,  we might see 50s city laws be December.

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

We just can't seem to get a decent cold front in here to break up this heat.  Enough already.  ::hot::

Knoxville's all-time record for days over 90 was set in 1936 at 78 days.  Right now we're officially at 71 with more 90 degree days ahead in the forecast.  This late in the season I can't imagine we'll have 8 more days of 90 or above but we're going to get close to that record.

Nashville averages 47 days with 90 degrees and above. The most

The ranking goes like this for days 90 and above:

2016...81 so far
1952...81
1941...81
1944...79
1953...78
1936...78
1925...78
1988...75
2007...74

The average date of the first 90 degree temp in Nashville is May
29th. The average date of the last 90 degree temp in Nashville is
September 15th.

The latest occurrence of 90 degrees is October 10th 1980.
