|Is September A Summer Or Fall Month? |
We had a couple of mornings with lows in the 40s this week here in Wisconsin. It left me thinking about that rake gathering dust in the corner of the garage.
Fall officially arrives on Sept. 23, but weather nerds consider September the first month of “meteorological fall.” However, there’s nothing “fall-like” about the weather ahead. A major heat wave will build into the nation’s midsection and spread into the Northeast over the holiday weekend.
Minneapolis could flirt with 100 degrees, something that has happened there in September only once before, 92 years ago. In much of the country, this heat looks to have staying power through at least mid-month, and could set the tone for the rest of the month. If you can’t let go of summer, this upcoming pattern is for you.
