Fall/Winter '17-'18
« on: August 06, 2017, 05:37:26 PM »
Believe it or not, Meteorological Fall is only a couple of weeks away.

Though we typically have many hot days and weeks ahead, I'm seeing some potential changes.  Hot and dry is beginning to yield just a bit.

Last year, I mentioned noticed an absence of tree leaf eating/dwelling 'web worm' nests.  This year, I have already seen more than all of last fall.  And for some reason, they seem to be closer to the ground than usual, at least so far.  Normally, they're fairly high in the trees, but most of the ones I've seen have been below 20' and some down near ground level.  I don't remember seeing them that low in previous years.

Another unofficial sign of Fall today.  A schoolbus on the road.  Probably only for maintenance or driver's training, but still a reminder they'll be out in force within a couple of weeks.

Fall is arriving early here.  Seven days into August and have had five over night lows in the upper 30s.  Max high of 74.4 and minimum low of 36.2.  Expect to start seeing frost delays at the golf course any day now.

Trees are losing leaves, but I'm sure that's more due to the dry weather than an early season change.  Weird thing though.  Last year the wooley worms I saw early were all light colored.  This year, every one I've seen so far have been completely black.  No light markings at all.

I'm with you on that.  But here in Wisconsin we've barely had a summer with the constant cool temperatures.  We have seen recent lows in the 30's in some parts of the state.  Looks like early September is going to start downright cold for us.

I'm sure it's more about 'dry' than seasonal change, but I've got trees almost bare already and piles of leaves everywhere.

I'm liking these periodic cool downs that yield temperatures 5 or 10 degrees below normal, but I sure hope they don't happen in D-J-F.

Just remember, whatever weather extremes and anomalies we have, or don't have, anthropogenic global warming is responsible! :twisted:

13 degrees below 'normal' yesterday.  45 outside this morning, 67 inside.

Hope Winter doesn't follow this lead-in.

Yes Autumn/Fall has definately arrived here in Northern Germany, it has been quite unsettled here in the past days, with plenty of sunshine, but also showers (and thunderstorms over the islands).
Tomorrow our first gale of the season is predicted to hit the coast, with gusts up to 120 km/h (75 mph), so up to hurricane force at the islands and the open sea and still about 100 km/h (60 mph) further inland. We are used to storms here during autumn and winter, however it comes a little early this year- October/November would be more usual.
Temperatures mostly in the range of about 14-17C or around 60F in the afternoon and 11-13C (52-55F) in the night time hours.
Best Regards

Georg

Autumn is slowly arriving in the PNW. I'm excited for it.

Here, in Oklahoma with that front, we're looking forward to a big chance for rain on Tuesday and possibly saying goodbye to highs in the low 90s for the rest of the year.  Lows to around 50.

The cold front brought in waves of rain over much of Oklahoma most of the day Tuesday without any violent weather from it here.  I wasn't too close to the fringe and got 2.45" starting from late Mon. night.  At least a couple of rural gauges just to the west got a bit over 3".  Another inch of rain may be in store before ending by late Wednesday.

About mid-day today, I realized I hadn't noticed a hummingbird yet.  Then I started watching for them.  Nada.

To me, THAT is a sure sign of Fall.
