Haha, yeah seems that way.
We cleared out today..truly amazing, stupendous weather now with bright sunshine, low humidity, north winds, and temperatures in the 60s/70s. Can’t believe it’s still the third week of August. 🤯
Any early stabs at what winter, or at least fall, holds for east of the Rockies?
I've badly wrong 2 out of the last 4 years and missed the southern end due to massive ridging over the eastern US last year. Same in 2016. Everything cut out of the SW to the lakes and I got warm and flooded.
My own opinion is that these upcoming cold waves are going to lead us to at least one cold Autumn month, like maybe October in the eastern 2/3 of the US with the impressive NAO coming back for the first time in a long while, but, again, I've been seeing before.
December and January look remarkably cold from where I stand as well, but a lot can change between now and then.
