Fall Officially Begins Today

Posted: Updated:

Today is the Autumnal Equinox which means it is officially Fall! On the equinox the earth's axis is tilted neither away nor towards the sun. The sun's rays actually hit the earth equally on this day, which means we'll see roughly 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. This only happens twice per year- on the Autumnal (Fall) Equinox and the Vernal (Spring) Equinox. Once today is over our days will begin to get shorter as the northern hemisphere will begin to face away from the sun in it's orbit around the sun.

Weather-wise we will see a reinforcing cold front move through the area. It won't bring us any rain, but drier and cooler air instead. By Monday morning we should see low temperatures drop into the upper 50's again for a day or two. Other than those two days, we can expect seasonal high and low temperatures for the next week or so with plenty of sunshine. The next front beyond tomorrow's looks to move through sometime next weekend and will likely bring us a few showers.

Enjoy the weather and Happy Fall!
