Well who knows this far out. I see a deep trough and lots of precip potential on the models. At least as of now.

How’s the cold shot they mentioned yesterday on the EPS?

Well the trough is centered to our west. I could see something like NE flow and thus maybe days are cooler if that happens. But it is nothing like this current shot. Verbatim some members have it cooling off after the first and some have more srly flow. I think the real warmth may push out around the first, unless the trough is not as progressive.

Jesus. Lil' Maple Hollow. 

Tell me about it. I am a little OCD with numbers and I am starting to question the Davis. Yesterday I installed it 6 ft off the ground. It is located at the lower edge of the property. Everything is frozen today, so it got below freezing, just not sure about 28 degrees. The location is unique and will be fun this winter, hopefully...

You guys with all these freezes...that can't be good for the leaves. Maybe best viewing on the elevated hillsides?

They are just falling off.  4 out of the last 6 mornings have been 32F or lower here, starting with the morning of the 15th.  And 3 of those into the 20s for like 6-7 hours at a time.

The vegetation has to be so confused.  Add in practically no rain for 3 weeks (0.35” since 9/1)...the trees are like we give up, see ya next year.

Ha I love Stein.  Great weather for outdoors and gets us a few more degrees at night.  Grasses still green when they aren’t white in the morning.  Let’s go Stein Diego.  I don’t know when the last time I had to stay inside when I wanted to go hiking or take the dog for a loop in the fields.  It’s awesome.

For weather, it is great. For the yard, it is not. Even the shrubs are crying for mama.

This lack of precip will have lasting effects.  I'm running 10" plus below normal for the year.

So CON bottomed at 27° which completely breaks the record low again. 3 straight record mins with no ties. Pretty impressive in this era and at that site...especially September. They have obs going back to 1859.

We endured the 2016 drought which resulted in death of many trees due to insect infestation. I am 20 inches under 17/18 18/19 but just an inch below 16/17 YTD.

Yeah down there maybe, didn’t see any effects up here but we also got at least a foot of rain this summer.  Dry Septembers aren’t all that uncommon...this is record level but in terms of vegetation I think they are used to a drying trend this time of year.

Its just led to some great cold nights and high diurnal ranges under sunshine, fantastic side effects lol.

I wouldn’t mind a dry September if the summer wasn’t so dry. I’m no lawn nazi, but I like to have it looking nice. It’s been a struggle this year. Usually this is the second greenup, but it’s not doing so great currently.

It looked promising when we got the rain at the start of the month. That definitely triggered lawn growth, coupled with the cooler nights.  That lasted about a week.

That's really solid.  You love to see that these days.
