My drive to work this morning was nice and wintry. There was a hard frost on the grass, some leftover snow on the rooftops of houses, and icicles hanging from porches.

Fun fact: If the month ended today at BNA, it'd go down as the 5th coldest. While this # will likely increase, we may give a Top 10 finish a run for its $$. Last time we saw a November this cold was 1995. 2014 not far behind. Weather weenies...feel free to dig in there.

Probably one of the ugliest falls (foliage-wise) I can remember. The drought and heat at the end of summer and first of fall took a toll. I feel like we were on the verge of seeing some decent color on the trees that still had leaves a couple of weeks ago. We have a small maple in the front that was starting to turn red. But, it seems like that hard freeze last week pretty well nuked most of the leaves left on the trees. The leaves seemed to shrivel and die on the branches after those mornings in the teens before they had a chance to show much color. It's odd since it seems like the "detach" mechanism was even halted. I'm just seeing a lot of trees full of dead, brown leaves. At this point, let's just get a windy, rainy system in here to strip the trees of what's left and move on to the winter look.

I agree. When I hit up Natchez Trace a few weeks ago, everything seemed green or burnt brown. Hardly any color in between. I guess this is why cool September/early October temps are so crucial to good foliage...

It's all about timing! Our foliage here was pretty good. I've seen more colorful autumns, but this one wasn't bad. Our leaves turn more quickly than the rest of the state (outside the eastern mountains), though. Once the hard freeze hit, what remained on the trees turned brown and the color was gone in a hurry, but we were well past our peak by that point.

If y'all are talking about the system that's showing up around Thanksgiving, both temps and dew points are going to have to exceed progged values.  The nearest 60F Td is south of Mobile.  991mb surface low over SE IA should provide some gustiness, but I'm not seeing much more than a typical frontal passage with a rather benign air mass behind it.

I hope there is zero severe weather until March.

On hold?  You said winter was over after the past cold snap.  I had gotten out my swim trunks and flip flops.  Donít let us down Bruce.
