Since we've already jumped into the winter forum I want to give us a chance to discuss the beautiful season that comes before  ::yum::

When I think of fall, I think of crisp days with brilliant blue skies and a light breeze...apple cider and a smoker jam-packed with meats. It's been a while since we've had a true fall, wall to wall. Last year wasn't terrible once we got into the second half of October, but the first half of October was miserable and there were some warm stretches all the way through November. Obviously Fall 2017 was significantly warm, and Fall 2016 was almost miserably hot. Fall 2015 featured more above-average temperatures than not, and Fall 2014 had record-setting heat into the end of October.

We actually had a spring this year...hopefully we'll have a real fall as well.

I have the same hopes.  I'd like a nice, long stretch of those great fall days where you need a jacket in the mornings and evenings but it's warm and sunny enough for just shirtsleeves during the day.  In terms of weather that's my favorite time of year, and when you add in college football, rich stews and homemade breads for dinner, and all the great color a real fall season makes for wonderful times leading into the holidays.

Autumn has largely disappeared in the last decade.  It seems "fall" is now regulated to the first few weeks before Christmas.

Maybe we can get a normal fall this year. We had a normal spring for the first time in forever.

Here on the KY/TN border in the late 90s/early 00s our September Average High was 82F and October was 71 or 72F.

Now it is 85F/75F respectively.  Probably because of the switch from 1961-2000 and 1970-2010 data versus 1981-2010 data.

It would be awesome to have an October with highs in the 60's-70's and lows in the 40's for a change.  To me, that is fall in the Mid-south and Southern Apps.  Well, at least the fall I fondly remember.

Probably a mix of climate change, urban heat island effect (the area around Ft. Campbell where the measurements were taken has seen a lot of development),  and that we had some pretty cool years in the 60s and 70s.  Even versus the 90s our heat ridges seem to last a bit longer and have a bit more bite since the mid 2000s.

Considering the strong heat ridges and record heat associated with them in Alaska and Europe, the lower 48 states have been fortunate this summer.  Our worst heat wave occurred in late May into June (outside of astronomical summer).  Even Texas has escaped the normal summer death ridge so far this year.

The heat overall this summer hasn't been that bad. I say it's been cooler than the last few years as far as super hot days. Even on a lot of days when we have had a lot of humidity we have either had a breeze or plenty of clouds or both. The climate has been changing since the beginning of time, man don't know it's reason. We may be in for a cool down as much as we may be rising. Only God knows, man doesn't have a clue. Just my thoughts sorry for the rambling. Can't wait for fall and of course bring on winter. But for now, got to get all the grass cutting in I can. Need another rain soon here in Montgomery County, the western part of town has missed the last few rounds of weather. It's been a great year for mowing so far, need it to continue.  ::guitar:: ::popcorn:: ::rain::

September 2007-2018 has been warmer than the 1950-2007 average across 99% of the USA.   

September 2019 looks to be more of the same unless something tropical happens in the early to mid part of the month to change that.
