Sergio looks to interact with arctic air in the southern plains for a really decent snow storm. Amarillo TX weather has always fascinated me but not to the point to live there. Sergio should get stalled along a front in western TN early next week and put down 2 to 3 inches of rain with some cool air to boot.
Similarly so, I've always felt the same about Denver. 80F one day, snow the next. 3000+ mean sunshine hours per month, 50" of annual snowfall. Some severe wx, but no humidity. Must be nice not being down wind from a massive tub of bath water.

What is this strange figure that is in the forecast tonight... low of 42- what is that? What will that feel like?

Might we die if we are out in that?

The sun is still above the horizon and it's already down to 63 with a good breeze blowing.  Finally feels like October!

Didn't make it to 42, but I'm happy with a marvelous 49 this morning.

At the desk to start my work day with a big mug of hot English Breakfast tea and my dog curled up on her bed beside me to sleep until we get out in the glorious weather to take a long walk.  This is what October mornings should be.  ;D

I have a feeling we may see a fairly abrupt change of foliage in the next week or two with this cool weather + the shorter hours of daylight at this point. With the rainfall seen over the last month, the trees seem fairly lush and green, so I'm hoping we'll see some nice color this year.

41F IMBY. Fall is here to stay. Or at least I hope, my <90F prediction went down a week later.  >:D

Agree. I expect a vibrant turnout in East Tenn. For those looking for a weekend getaway, the Smokies will be gorgeous around Halloween.

Sugar maples near my house are already showing a slight orange tint.  With the cool nights deep into the 40's, they'll be putting on a good show in a few weeks. This will be the first autumn in several years without dryness, so I would think the color would be better this year compared to previous, especially 2016.

I dunno. My maples have lost approximately 30%-50% of their leaves already...way ahead of schedule. No color; they just turned brown and dropped. I've already had to mulch leaves...something I have NEVER done this early. I've seen several huge, mature white oaks that are almost devoid of leaves entirely. Same thing; they just turned brown and dropped. I'm not sure if it's the heat or what that did it, but it'll be interesting to see how this transitions into the colors (or lack thereof) in the next couple 1-2 weeks.

I think some trees react to the suns angle more then others possibly. Ive noticed lots of the same for the past few weeks way before any kind of cool down occurred.

Late season heat and humidity have a negative effect on fall color, at least in my experience.  I planted a grove of aspen trees about fifteen years ago in order to enjoy their brilliant yellow fall color.  However, while the trees have thrived, never once have they produced any color.  In late September their leaves simply mildew, wither, and blow away.  This environment is not necessarily that much hotter than their native climate, but it is much more humid.

It's a strange scene in Knoxville this morning.  Beautiful cool temperatures, nice chilly breeze, some bright blue sky, but also some low, very dark clouds that just seem out of place.  Later in the year it would look like snow.
