Definitely a reality check today with the first blast of legit cool weather.  September was so summerly it kinda felt like summer would never end lol.  Today is a reminder that Ned Stark was right, winter is coming. :sled:

For sure.  Probably have to go back about 5-6 months for the last time that temps were like this at this time of day (talking about the area behind the cold front of course)

I did not bother covering any plants tonight.  It's too windy.  I don't really like to do all that work this late in the season, anyway.  I still have several flower pots in the garage for the hummers.  They all appear to know how to use feeders, too.

We could, but with the winds expected to stay up, I'm not planning covering the ol' sensitive vegetation.

I got nothing to cover after September lol.  Still have some peppers in the garden but a light frost tends to pull the sugars into them so I'm for it.  Might get some some sweet hots of the bush's this year, it's been awhile.  I can honestly say this is going to be the first weekend that it truly feels like Fall in a long time.  The extended seems to keep it coming.  I'm all in if we can keep it going to turkey day.  I swear, there has not been a Fall of my youth since I moved back 7 years ago.

 

 

 

 

 

might get some sweet hots off the vine this year been awhile.  It'll be patchy if it happens

This time last night the dew was 63.  Right now it's 26.  Have seen a thousand of these types of rapid air mass changes in my lifetime but it never seems to get old.  Always exciting to see such a dramatic change take place.  

Temps have languished a bit this eve with the cloud deck at around 5k ft remaining overhead, but the back edge of the cloud deck is almost here.  Should see our current temp of 39 dip down below freezing before sunrise.

Upper 30's have reached northern middle TN. 45 degree swing in 15 hours. Not far off from our first frost advisories of the season!

Looks like areas WELL west of Chicago got down to freezing or just below... talking like DeKalb and Rockford.  Aurora didn't even make it but last night wasn't a night where they shine since it was mainly advective cooling.  Then had widespread 33-34 readings south of the city (including here).

Ahh...refreshing fall temps have finally arrived with some color appearing on trees down this way in central IN.  Beautiful day for the first weekend of the Parke county covered bridge festival.  But I must admit I have been spoiled by the warmer temps hanging on for so long.....it was quite a shock to the system Friday evening when that cold front finally arrived.  KIND extended forecast says above normal temps and precip shall return however.  We shall see.

Freeze warning verified as we hit 31 here.  Only made it to 33 at MLI and DVN though.

Quite a bit windier than I thought it would be today.  Have been getting gusts to near 40mph at times.  There was even some blowing dust out in some of the freshly harvested fields while driving home from work earlier.

Dropped down to 32 last night, the one thing I don’t miss about colder temps is the inevitable car scraping. 
 

Amazing October day. Chili, college football, drinking rum with apple cider and cinnamon sticks with the family.

Mason City, IA has been in the mid 30s with light snow for much of the day.

Yeah it was a whole different world up there today compared to our areas.  It nearly hit 60 here with full sunshine all day.  Felt cooler though with the very dry air, and the relentless winds.

Speaking of the wind, it's likely somebody flipped a switch around sundown.  It's practically dead calm out there now lol.

Can confirm, have gotten under 32 both nights. Expect another frost tonight
