September 1st marks the first day of meteorological fall.
And while the rest of the world is choosing to wait the calendar-specified 21 more days to bust out the scarves and pumpkin spice lattes, us meteorologists tend to jump the gun.
You see, we define the seasons by months with similar temperatures instead of following the cycle of the moon. So meteorological fall runs from September 1st to November 30th. And for residents from the Mid-Atlantic to the Northeast, the start of meteorological fall will have many digging in the closet for those forgotten clod-weather layers.
A Bitter Cooldown
Following a cold front that moved off the east coast. a shift in the winds brought some cooler Canadian air to the region.
Cooler temperatures will be felt by many as early as this afternoon.
But it’s tomorrow morning that will be the coldest for some!
Some will even see the first frost of the season.
As early as Saturday we will start to see warmer temperatures.
Sunday will be even warmer for many!
And a perfect Labor Day.
So get out and enjoy your 3-day weekend!
