Bye-Bye Summertime!


Fall Arrives Monday at 9:44 AM (CDT)
It is the last day of summer today (Sunday, September 21st).  Fall equinox arriving tomorrow!

In not too many days, we'll see the leaves change and fall from the trees here in Middle Tennessee.  Typically, we can count on the last three weeks of October for peak fall colors over in the Smoky Mountains...here in Middle Tennessee, it is 10 days to 2 weeks afterwards.

Looking back at summer, here is how our high temperatures stacked up versus the normal high.
June           2.3° ABOVE normal
July            1.5° BELOW normal
August       1.0° BELOW normal
September 1.0° ABOVE normal

Don't forget, September is Nat'l Preparedness Month

We've been quite dry here in Middle Tennessee.  Here is an updated United States Seasonal Drought Outlook

On this date way back in 1956, the temperature fell to 33 degrees in Crossville.  Crossville is about 35 miles to our east.  Thanks to the NWS-Nashville for that piece of information!

Nice fall photos! Some of my other fellow WeatherBug Reporters have posted some at the WeatherBug Blog as well. When I go on my Georgia trip in a couple of weeks I hope I'll have some to post as well.
