Monday September 23 2019

Summer heat can hang on, or fall can race in. Earlier this morning, the Autumnal or Fall Equinox occurred. That means the sun’s direct rays are now south of the equator and our time in daylight will grow shorter than dark hours at night. Eventually we will get cooler air as a result, but not today. Well, at least for the start it feels like summer and urban areas will hit the 90s again. It will not be a record, however it might feel like it.  Some relief will come with a cold front will pass through mid to late afternoon. If you are lucky, you might get a brief rain shower. It will not be enough to ease the growing drought conditions, but you will notice a difference in the weather tomorrow.

 

Extreme weather is common in stretches this time of year.  We can get locked in a pattern for a few days that can be late summer heat or early fall chill.  A heat wave in 1970 and a chilly stretch in 1983 stand out.

Lack of Rain- Animation

After today’s cold front, the next hope for some showers will be next weekend. At this point, we can only hope for showers, but not the organized rain event we will need to ease the growing drought conditions.
