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.
Amen. I knew we would have another warm spell but we got it whipped now.

Yep! Avg temps are on a quick decline starting now through winter so above average isn't as bad. And we won't be anywhere like last September when we had mid to upper 90's solid through early October.

Amen!

I'm fine with  ::blowtorch:: from now thru mid December. No matter how winter turns out relative to average there will be plenty of cold and dreary on the way.

Agree with ya on that.  I enjoy a mild October, and even November, because we don't ever see much snow then anyway, so it might as well be above freezing until we can cash in on it with flakage!

And nothing beats a nice mild weekend in late October or November after a hard freeze has occurred, allowing us to enjoy the outdoors again without all the annoying biting insects.

Hottest football game I've sat through was UT-Ohio last September. The old folks were dropping like flies that afternoon.  ::hot::

I was there too but perhaps more entertained by the old 6'5" drunk man who threw up all over the people in front of him in 92 degree heat.

Do you always refer to yourself in the 3rd person?
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

For football fans everywhere, hopefully we won't see that brand of heat this fall.

I think last autumn was probably one of the worst I've experienced.  No rain for nearly two months and record heat don't mix in fall fire season.  (I thought I had died and went to California!)   ::panic::

The Raiders / Titans game was brutal last year. My stepdad had problems and got too hot. This year was the complete opposite except for my Raiders taking care of business again.  ::pirate::

If it weren't for the wildfires, I would take a redux of last fall every year. Sunshine for days on end and warm temps...the weather was fantastic. I don't mind fall-like temps, though, and I'm actually dreading the fact that we're probably gonna see 80+ temps every day for the rest of the month starting Saturday.

One more day of the dank, dreary drizzles over here on the east side, then a long stretch of sunny 80's arrive.  Summer's last  hurrah, perhaps.

Hopefully, the wet conditions of late would inoculate the region from a repeat of last year if we did go into a long stretch of dry weather with above average temperatures this fall.

Whatever the statistic is this damp and dreary weather has put my dog into full winter mode; she barely wants outside on days like this and is wearing a permanent hole into her bed.  I'm going to be grateful for some sunshine the next few days.

Endless cloudy days with drizzle should remain in winter.

Fall is my favorite time to do some hiking in the mountains, so looking forward to some sun this weekend to get outside.
