The End of SummerSeptember 21st, 2012 at 8:33 am by Michelle Muscatello under General Talk, Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
This weekend we mark the end of summer and the beginning of Autumn–at least the calendar version–as the Autumnal Equinox happens at 10:49am EDT on Saturday. The question is, will the weather coincide with the calendar? We’ve been dealing with the cooler temperatures over the last 2 weeks, and, overall, it doesn’t look like any major warm-ups are on the way into the end of September. In fact, the warmest day we have on our 7 day Futurecast comes on Saturday, with highs inland near 77. Another cold front sweeps through early on Sunday and that will bring another shot of cool air for the early part of the week.
The Climate Prediction Center shows no major warmth for the eastern half of the nation through the end of September… in fact, while our temperatures in New England may end up close average, much of the East Coast is predicted to be cooler than normal.
Warm weather lovers can hold on to hope of the occasional warm snap this Autumn Season (it seems to be pretty typical these days). In fact, the seasonal outlook from the Climate Prediction Center has the northern tier of the country (including New England) for the final months of 2012.
