I can't believe it was 96F two years ago down there, ha.  Looks like BOS hit 97F on today's date in 2018 too.  That's impressive.

I think any of us would take that over this severe  drought with everything dying and wells drying up. Jesus H

The woods and hillsides around here are filled with these early changing leaves.. mainly this species and the maples due to stress. I’ve never seen these things go so early. They actually stated during the last week of August. Anyone know what type of tree?

Looks like poplar to me but not sure.

Wasn't that wet cut-off in late June?  That one that kept pinwheeling rain in cyclonic flow for like 3 days?

That plus being the beneficiaries of countless 20 minute downpours.  It was almost daily for like 2 weeks.

We take:

 

September around here used to be more of a transitional month into fall. It often would start on a warm note, but then turn fairly cool. Increasingly, the month is more like a fourth month of summer with many days well into the 70s and 80s. The nights are also a lot warmer than 30 or 40 years ago.

Since 1872, if you look at the top 20 Septembers you will find 10 of them in the past two decades.

it's crazy how warm September has been the last couple of decades. You can see it in longer growing seasons and peak foliage being pushed later and later into the fall.

It does seem like a summer month more often than not.  Be interesting to see the different averages if frosts/freezes are later or if that’s just imagined.

Some serious southerly flow going on today... wind is just cranking up here.  The dogs ears look like she’s got her head out of a moving car but she’s standing still, lol.  Warm air advection in full swing.  Has a vibe of like an impending cutter, with WAA and mid-level clouds streaming in.

Toughest year of my professional life coming up. The emails from parents are already flying and we haven’t even started yet...

Anyway, today was a great day to spend outdoors.  Hiked the local bump, then took a final plunge into the pool.  Maybe one next weekend...68F pool temp

3,300ft, that landing is the top of the old Big Spruce Double chair that’s no longer there.

Every single sign points to mild, dry winter. Good luck on that one

They are later. Here are the Connecticut average first frost dates based on the 1971-2000 and 1981-2010 normals to give you an idea of how much they've moved.

Good luck man. I know it’s going to be a challenge. Teachers aren’t getting the respect they deserve in this. I feel ya.

That’s a lot of shift for only one decade added on those dates...

Wait until next July when the 1991-2020 normals are released and the blow torch 2010s replace the '80s. Could see those dates move another 5 days later.

The 60s and 70s had some really cool summers and autumns. I’m sure the 2001-2030 normals will be terrible. CON had quite a few mid Sep freezes in the 90s.

From 1962-1980 CON had more first freezes (32°) in August (2) than October (1).

In the last 18 seasons 11 have been in October and 7 in September.

Pulling teeth to get below normal September at CON these days...

For those that are stressed about the unknowns of what the next few months hold , or those stressed about a mild, dry winter coming.. this is a fantastic pick me up song. At the end, you’ll feel like things are ok. It’s got that effect especially right at the end.

This is ORH. Definitely a little warmer in the past than CON but clearly still pulling teeth to go below avg in September these days. It’s actually amazing how consistently chilly the 1980s and first half 1990s were in September. Kind of fits my childhood memories at least

CON is probably losing their ability to radiate too in addition to just straight AGW. Im not all that aware of how any developments or land use near the airport has gone over the past couple decades.
