Taste of Autumn Expected After First Week of September

For all of the cool weather loves who can’t stand the heat, there is hope coming for after the first week of September. Much of the Midwest and the Nation’s Heartland will experience much cooler temperatures than normal for September. Some parts of the Upper Plains could even dip into the upper 30s in outlying areas. However, the cool shot may not make it all the way to the East Coast.

The cool air invasion will be the result of a recurving typhoon in the Pacific, which will amplify the jet stream and allow it to dip far south over the Continental US. This allows for the cooler air to move south.

The coming cool shot will arrive sometime around September 7th along a powerful cold front. This front does have the potential to touch off severe storms, including tornadoes, however we will cross that bridge when we come to it.

But for the Carolinas, mainly the western Carolinas will get their first taste of fall. Coastal locations will average around normal, and may not experience the true crisp fall air that the western Carolinas will.

Highs may not make it past 85 degrees here in the Carolinas, with blue skies and a refreshing breeze. Again, this is mainly for western locations.

Almost time for pumpkin spice and hoodies…..for some.

Stay tuned to our Facebook page and right here on the blog for the latest on this developing fall outbreak.
