In non-hurricane news they're predicting "near record lows" in Knoxville tonight and tomorrow night at 49 and 50 degrees respectively.  I'm loving the early taste of fall and chilly air.

This is so much better than last year.  I've got all the windows open, there is no choking smoke filling the air, and no need for the air conditioner.  Hope it lasts all month long.

I don't know if I've ever seen such comfortable weather forecast this early in September here. Temps below 80, low humidity, and no chances of rain. We're frequently still in the 90s then.

Absolutely perfect October morning with temps in the upper 40's.  O wait, it's early September.  My bad.

Anyone else catch a glimpse of the full moon?  It was super bright last night.

It doesn't get much better than this!  Cool and crisp in the valley this morning, heavy dew, and that scent to the air that you only get in the fall.  I wonder which of our friends will have the first bonfire this weekend...

Just like summer, the 2017 autumn is the complete opposite of last year--at least so far.

The temperature out here dropped briefly to 44.8F just before 5:00 AM after spending several hours in the upper 40's.  Remarkable for early September ...  ::cold::

It was a morning for the UHI effect to be evident in full force. Virtually the entire state outside of the cities was in the 40s. However, all four major cities remained in the 50s on the hourly reports.

A perfect October morning was followed by a perfect October day.  Just in September.

It was a crisp 47 here this morning. What lovely weather for early September.

It is a picture perfect fall-like morning.  Coffee, hammock swing, and rustling leaves in the cool morning breeze--couldn't be much better.

Could someone explain why the NOAA temperature outlooks are (usually) faulty? I could have sworn I checked the outlook for this month earlier in the summer and NOAA had the continental U.S. marked with above normal temps.

Anyways, here's the map now, which looks much closer to what we've experienced. Yet they've got the 1-month lead for OND with the same above normal temp coverage across the U.S. What's the reason for this?

Yep, after a long cooler than normal stretch we may flip to warmer for awhile.  But at least a  ::blowtorch:: in late September isn't as bad as a  ::blowtorch:: in July.
