Some folks may be wondering, ‘Where in the world is my fall weather?!’ Hang in there, my friends. It will come soon enough.
In the meantime though, we have unbearable heat lingering in the Gulf Coast states. Once again Sunday heat advisories are in effect. *Note* this image was taken Saturday night and additional heat alerts may be issued by your local National Weather Service office. Here’s how they look so far.
A large area of high pressure will continue to bake the south-central United States. This high pressure system moved in after Hurricane Dorian moved out. It brought tons of dry air and that’s resulted in record temperatures.
So let’s get to the question regarding the location of ‘fall.’ In short, it’s fall in Bismarck, Jackson, Duluth, Marquette and Presque Isle. The immediate northern tier of the country is experiencing cooler weather.
For the rest of the weekend, temperatures in the 40’s at night and 50’s during the day will make the northern U.S. feel much more like the month of September. Long-range prediction points to continued warmth for much of the nation through September 21st.
