I'm taking the morning to work on the patio and it's finally a good fall day with cool air, a good breeze, and leaves falling around the yard.  I'm also impressed with how fast the clouds are moving; wind speeds at elevation must really be something with this front.  It's nice to feel like summer is really behind us now.

I suspect a gradient difference between Matthew and the incoming high is giving winds a boost for much of the state today.

Trees definitely have some color. Hopefully wet summer here and dry fall so far will accelerate the timing and color moving into late October.

the rest of October looks to remain dry and plenty of boring weather to come... look for precip to be below average throughout fall into winter...as we slowly progress towards slightly nina conditions
Come on severe wx season...

Not that atypical really although temps have been slower to cool per normal. With a tanking AO and NAO moving into November, that should shake things up a good bit.

Dry conditions are beginning to negatively affect some foliage around here. Younger vegetation especially is taking on a dry look to its color. BNA has only received about 1.5" of rain since August 27 (when 1.6" inches fell). Hurricane Matthew threw a wrench in yesterday's would be rain chances and no significant rainfall is expected through at least next weekend.

Hate to get off topic here but here but does anyone know where if there is a website like this for Colorado or the Rocky Mtn region? I have had no search luck so far. AmericanWX is about the closest but the sub for the Rocky Mtn region doesn't get much traffic.

Driving from Memphis to Birmingham you could definitely notice the drought area in northern Mississippi.

Memphis has seen  0.73" in the last 46 days (it doesn't get much drier than that around here), but I think the 12"+ surplus for the year has kept the vegetation from looking as dry as it could.

This fall has been as dry as any I can remember up here. We've had measurable precipitation 4 out of the last 46 days. Streamflows are near record lows. Surprisingly, our reservoirs are holding their levels very well -- probably mostly due to the above-average rainfall in the spring and last year's record-setting rainfall.

The latest GFS runs continue a more active pattern for next week. The models show (especially the GFS) show a pretty strong low pressure system across the upper Midwest and Great Lakes around next Tuesday and we could have a system to deal with later that week into the weekend of the 21st-22nd as well. A pretty active Pacific NW pattern is setting up as well.

The strong gradient winds from Matthew caused a couple of fires this weekend. One on Signal Mountain is still burning. I was in Chicago this weekend and I noticed that the leaves up there were actually behind ours, but I imagine that is 100% due to the extreme drought
