Incredible wx these last few days.  One can tell that days are now getting shorter and fall is calling soon.  How quickly time goes the older one gets.

I seem to have mixed feelings about the passage of time this year. On one hand it doesn't seem like we should be this deep into 2020, but on the other hand February of 2020, which was pre-pandemic, seems like a whole lifetime ago. In any case I'm looking forward to the change of seasons and hoping for some cool, crisp, fall air at a seasonally appropriate time this year.

And even if it's in the 90s on the 1st of September we're still putting up the fall decorations and I'm baking a batch of ginger snaps with pumpkin custard. COVID, the thermometer, and other opinions be darned fall is an excuse to be happy and celebrate and we're going to go all out for it this year!

I agree it's just never long enough :) lol. We go from blowtorch to a few nice weeks to cold mid November and usually stay cold and then bam right into spring in feb (at least the past few years)

I wish fall could really last 5-6 weeks here, our landscape is so beautiful in tennessee

Europe at least France and Germany has had a pretty manageable summer up until about a week ago. This may also cause some virus concerns as people will want to be indoors in the AC as well (for those places that have AC).

The skies got really dark with the cell moving over West Knox county right now, along with heavy rain and a good bit of thunder. Somehow it feels right for back to school weather.

Some encouraging signs after midweek August won't be so brutal. ABNA Asian Bering Sea North America pattern has shifted. USA and Canada heat shifts from Great Lakes to West (esp. US Southwest). Over in Asia the Mongolia (plus parts of Eastern Siberia) and North China heat is broken. Ridge shifts to South China.

The trick in the USA is to avoid a Southeast ridge SER when the Great Lakes heat breaks. China will have it's own SER soon. So far looks like a Desert Southwest to Texas problem. Of course Texas is not too far from the Mid South. Mid Atlantic still has some hot days, which is not too far from Appalachia.

While heat risk remains, I'm cautiously optimistic that the ABNA switch will help August downshift. Now the ABNA never really hit us with intense heat; it was the Great Lakes menace. However the loss of a ridge up there might allow more fronts. Risk is SER ahead of them, stalling them. If that can be avoided, even seasonable heat with a little lower humidity would be welcome.

August is going to be August, but I am hopeful not much worse than seasonable or slightly AN temps. Probably not a heat blowout.  8)
