When Will Fall Begin?

While Florence dumped an absolute deluge of rain on the East Coast, Bowling Green officially received .13 inches from rain associated with the remnants of the hurricane. As the post tropical system moves out, high pressure will begin to move in by mid-week. Another very slight chance for rain around the dinner time hours tomorrow will be the last for the next few days. And as the rain goes away, the mercury will take quite the leap with temperatures soaring yet again into the low 90s. While it is already meteorological Fall and will officially be astronomical Fall in just a matter of days from now, don’t be fooled. Prepare for conditions equivalent to the dog days of summer.

With a lack of clouds and very weak winds on Wednesday and Thursday, there won’t be any relief from the heat.¬†Dew points will be in the upper 60s to low 70s throughout the week. Any outdoor activities should be done with caution especially if they are strenuous. Stay hydrated and take frequent breaks.

To recap:

Tuesday: Slight chance of rain, mainly around the early dinner time hours. High of 90 with partly sunny conditions. Winds will be light out of the West then North later in the day.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy with a high of 91. Wind will again be light.

Thursday: High of 93, with clear skies allowing plenty of opportunity for a real heater of a day.

For now, those pumpkin spice lattes will be the closest thing any of us will get to that Fall-feelin’. The flannels and orchard visits will have to wait a little while longer.
