Fall has Arrived, Transition Time!
Just about a week ago the weather forecast was completely different. A major trough across the Pacific Northwest helped to keep us unseasonably warm with a southerly flow. It looks like September of 2015 will be top 5 warmest on record; however, we are now heading in a polar opposite direction.
Tonight as we clear out we are expecting a significant drop in temperatures. Some lake clouds could hold temperatures closer to the lake around 50, but the western suburbs will easily fall into the low to middle 40s.
There are frost and freeze advisories all across the Northwoods tonight, and our time will be coming for some cold. According to the NWS Milwaukee, we typically see our first frost around October 14th. On average our first freeze occurs between the second and third week of October.
