This past week we’ve been getting some badly need rain, too late for the farmers, but still needed. The flow of the weather has changed in a snap from summer to autumn with lake effect rain and graupel (precipitation that forms when supercooled droplets of water are collected and freeze on a falling snowflake). Temps have ranged from the middle 50’s for highs and as low as 29° for lows. The clouds have changed over to autumn / winter clouds hanging low in the sky. With that I will pass you off to some photos.
The temps are getting lower. The clouds are getting lower, and the leaves are starting to change. Autumn has started.
Cool this morning with temps at 36°. Enjoy this warm weekend, should be mostly sunny and in the mid to upper 60’s. Next week Autumn really hits where we’ll struggle to get out of the 50’s and a good chance of a hard freeze Tuesday night with temps dipping into the 20’s.
With the lowering of the clouds comes even more brilliant Sunsets and rises.
The following link is one of the many Winter 2012/2013 outlooks. The difference with this one is that from what I’ve read, this seems to be about on track. Guess we’ll see eh.
