Fall/Winter 20-21 General Observations

Recommended Posts

Rains have definitely increased IMBY.  It looks like spring here with all of the green. So far this is the antithesis of September last year.  Leaves should look awesome this year.

Showers nearby have the temperature here at 84 degrees but the humidity is 82 percent. That 78 degree dewpoint has the feels like temperature near 100. Feels like the gulf coast outside. Bring on the cold front!

Until that inevitable storm front comes through and blasts all the leaves off like an industrial mega-leaf blower

Hey, I actually like one big storm to take all of the leaves down!!!!  LOL.  I don't like getting nickel and dimed with leaf work.  I like seeing howlers come through and just strip every leaf.

Whew!  It was warm yesterday.  Starting to get flashbacks of last September.  Looks like a cool down is on the way for the latter third of the month.   That said, we hit 90(or above) fourteen times last September.  We have hit it zero times so far during this September at TRI.  We may very well hit it today though, but still much improved!  Watching cross country runners fight the heat yesterday afternoon....glad I was a spectator and glad there was some shade on the course!!!  I have much respect for young people who can traverse a course in that heat and humidity.

CPC maps made today depict BN temps in the 6-10 day, 8-14 day, and 3-4 week experimental forecast ranges.  Not often one sees that.  I will even settle for seasonal.

Didn't get as much rain as areas around 40, but still got an inch and a half and it's been cold and drizzly all day today, currently at 59 degrees with heavy mist. Should help keep the fire possibilities down as leaves from sycamore, apple and walnut/butternut trees have started falling here.

Been in the mid 50s all day here.  Around midnight it was 67, so the record for today will make it seem warmer than what it actually was.  Drizzle, rain, mist....regular rain fest.

48 degrees at 8:48 on Sept. 30 in Kingsport. High today is predicted to be 68. Last year we set our record high for yesterday at 93. What a difference a year can make!

Got down to 44 this morning after it turned partly cloudy yesterday evening. So much better than last year, as Icy Hot pointed out. It was miserable,  hot and we were in a flash drought at this time last year.

I made it down to 35 this morning. Had the first frost of the year. Seems like the last few years the cold arrived so late I would just skip a frost and go straight to a freeze by the time a good cold front arrived. Nice to see an early frost for a change. Leaves are changing rapidly too. There are a few entirely red and orange ones out there.
