THE FALL CHILL ARRIVES...
Just a little business to start with regarding my fund raising drive. I'm asking those of you that like the insights and effort that goes into this site to consider a voluntary subscription. I'm asking $12.00 dollars for a year. That's $1 dollar a month or 3 cents a blog if you consider the fact there were 450 posts issued over the past year. I need your help paying the bills if things are going to continue. I do this 365 days a year and I would deeply appreciate a donation. Click on the link if you can help or for more information. I thank you for your support and consideration.

This is certainly not uncommon... in fact we'd normally start to see frost in late September/early October, but summer hung on for a while. Temperatures have been pretty warm largely for the first half of October:
Now fall is moving in, but we do have some days above normal ahead still. Sunday is going to be a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine:
Temperatures will be on the mild side (for mid-October standards) to start the new week as a ridge of high pressure builds in the upper levels of the atmosphere:
Temperatures will be near 70 on Monday as a result:
Temperatures will be similar on Tuesday as well. Wednesday will be a transition day as a storm moves into the Midwest and bring a few showers to the area:
Cooler air moves back in and by Thursday the chill is back:
