12z NAM had a nasty looking squall line along with 3000 CAPE, -6 LI and 3-5(!!!) EHI from NNJ/the City up through the LHV tomorrow at 8:00.

It backed off from previous run for the immediate NYC metro but we have to wait until  to see what happens in the morning first.

Maybe there's a difference, "Christmas" songs being timeless Yuletide hymns whereas Xmas music is just that one Mariah Carey song on repeat from Halloween until MLK Day

same ol 100 burnt out songs over and over and over.  Worse than a classic rock station...

September has become more like a 4th month of summer since the late 90's. Record number of years with a September average temperature at or above 70 for places like EWR and LGA. Almost as warm as an average June.

I was born in 92 and can't remember a single "fall-like" September. More like a lot of drier Junes.

Last September was the ultimate fake out. A place like EWR had the record cold upper 40's on the 2nd followed by a late month heatwave and departure rebound.

And then October was an epic torch. My first month in the city. <_<

It's a great shore going month if you have the time. Very warm water, less tourists, still fantastic weather. 

Never thought of September as a fall month, to me fall starts about 10/15 when we see more rapid changes with temps, foliage, and daylight.

I remember early in September 1964, the lows on my first few days of college, in Brooklyn, were in the upper 40’s. Unc will correct me  if I’m wrong.

I know where you're going with that, but it may be surprising to note that the rate of daylight loss peaks in mid-September, at 2m40s/day (at my latitude... may vary +/- a couple seconds across the subforum). We're actually losing daylight more rapidly now than we will be during November and December.

The greatest rate of change occurs during the equinoxes and the slowest during the solstices. First day of spring is peak gain, first day of summer around 0, first day of fall greatest loss, and first day of winter around 0.
