Yep, went up Humpback Mountain. Actually my first time on Skyline Drive, oddly enough. Need to make it up there again!

 

Very pretty. Fall is a great time at Shenandoah NP. Made the mistake of going last fall at sunset. The place was packed.

Just watching the ens guidance over the last week has me thinking the first freeze is coming pre-Halloween for all but DCA. Makes sense. Over extended summer flips on a dime and the cold Canada pattern adjusts its aim toward the EC. I considered going earlier on first freeze contest but I went with persistence. Not making any calls but something to watch.

Man I feel like I am in a different world. Outside getting stuff done- no sweat, and the mosquitoes and chiggers are impotent. Awesome.

Currently 56, which is the high for the day. Mostly been in the low 50s. I love fall weather.

How did you get so lucky to move to such a magical place?

I got this lucky, because my late father passed in June, and also because most of my family lives in the Lone Star state. Today, I got super lucky! Our dewpoint is back up to 77 degrees ugh.

Make your own luck, Subtropics. Move down here. The music scene is extraordinary and the beer is even better. So is the barbeque. But, this is a very hot, extremely HUMID place.

Get ready for a highly anomalous, super snowy and brutally cold winter in the Mid Atlantic. You'll be crying for spring by New Years.

Kinda surprised at the frost advisory... lows as low as 36 doesn't scream frost potential to me, but I guess its more of a heads up that the first cold night is ahead tonight

40F already.  Sky is so clear; it's breathtaking the amount of stars tonight.  Fire-pit blazing on the patio and sippin' cider warmed on the fire.  God, I love fall.

40 here as well. The moon tonight is amazingly clear . Went to the Carroll county wine festival today..had a great time. ...finished the day at a local pub drinking a few micro brews.

From one end of the scale to the other lol. The 55.2 degree high is a new record 'cool max' for the date, beating 2006's 56.0 degree reading that was tied with 1988. 3-4 days ago I was setting record 'warm minimums'....... The low was 42.8, could have been much cooler but clouds rolled in not long after dark and locked temp in. Few sprinkles earlier here.

44F in the closer-in ‘burbs (Burke) last night. It dipped to 46F by about 10:30, but didn’t drop much by morning. Still a really chilly night.

This morning was wonderful...just the process of drinking coffee first thing this morning while letting the kids play around the cool house...

Same here.  I was 40F before midnight and it didn't drop below that.  Cloudy when I woke, so they must've rolled in soon after I went inside for the night.  Still, a great chilly night, though it ruined our chances for frost.  We were well on our way to mid-30s.

Some mesoscale models have some convective line segments moving swiftly through parts of the region tomorrow evening with some meager CAPE but decent shear. Maybe some wind gusts with any that form.

Watch list or reaper call? :P

Speaking of, who is going to continue my legacy?

Reaper Call. H2O would be a good Reaper.

But YOU are going to continue as Reaper. The Reaper NEVER dies.........

this summer was crazy.  i don't remember anything like this before.  i think i've seen new bug species as a result lol.  mosquitoes everywhere.  i love spring/summer, but this was overly fulfilling.  i'm actually pretty ok with cooler temps right now to reset things.
