Some chilly winter weather is in store for the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, with January threatening to bring the coldest air of the season. For most of both regions, this will translate to an above-normal snow season. New York City and Boston, Massachusetts, may be the exceptions to this, with early predictions calling for 6 inches of snowfall or more above normal in both cities. Areas prone to lake-effect snow will also see high totals, including Cleveland, Ohio; Erie, Pennsylvania; and Buffalo, New York. The Northeast and mid-Atlantic aren’t the only ones who will feel the cold blast of this winter’s La Nina. Arctic blasts are set to freeze the northern Plains this winter

As many as 17 active fires have charred over 221,000 acres in California, according to Cal Fire. Fire crews have been called upon from other states to help battle the blazes. The wildfires have taken the lives of at least 32 people and have left tens of thousands homeless. Increasing dry, wind gusts may hinder the containment of the fires, the gustiest winds will likely occur between Friday night and Saturday across Northern California. “Winds of 15-30 mph will be enough to rapidly spread any fires that develop and those that are ongoing [in northern California],” Vido said. “Gusts between 35 and 50 mph will be possible at higher elevations.” While gusty winds from

In October, the season’s first 32-degree low temperatures begin to migrate from the high country of northern New England, the Rockies and areas near the Canadian border into much of the interior Northeast, Great Lakes, Midwest, northern and central Plains, and High Plains of the Rockies. This includes areas as far south as the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina, parts of the Oklahoma and Texas Panhandles, and northern New Mexico. With only a few more weeks of warmer weather left, some people are looking forward to the first snowfall. With this increasingly cold air, accumulating snow previously restricted to the highest peaks of the Rockies and Alaska in September begins to

While sticky, tropical air lingers over much of the Florida Peninsula, an area of disturbed weather bears watching over the next few days. Following Irma’s devastation, Maria spared Florida by turning northward, well east of the peninsula. Steering winds are likely to guide this disturbance northward or northeastward, close to or over the Florida Peninsula this weekend. There is a chance this system may become a tropical depression or storm, but rapid development to a hurricane is unlikely through this weekend. As the disturbance drifts to the north and northeast, showers and thunderstorms will be enhanced from south to north throughout the Florida Peninsula this weekend. On one hand, the system

Much cooler air will settle in the midwestern and northeastern United States this weekend, prior to another warmup during the first half of October. While a major change in the weather pattern is underway, more seasonable, autumn conditions are not likely to lock in just yet. Temperatures will not be as warm as they were during this last heatwave, but temperatures will reach the 80’s for much of Pennsylvania and throughout the mid-Atlantic states. As the cooler temperatures will linger through the weekend, some areas could see frost on Saturday. Lake effect clouds and showers are possible for the northern regions of the state as the cool air moves across. The

Fall features a variety of events that don’t require telescopes to view, including several meteor showers, planetary alignments and the only supermoon of 2017. One of the most well-known full moons of the year will rise in early October, shining brightly in the autumn sky. Most of us have a fascination with the night sky, whether it be the stars, constellations, or the moon. The moon will rise on October 5 and will be known as the harvest moon. “The Harvest Moon is the moon that falls nearest the autumnal equinox; this full Moon provides the most light at the time when it’s needed most—to complete the harvest,” the Old Farmer’s Almanac said.

While summer officially ended on the 22nd, summer-like temperatures decided to hang around for north and southeast. Temperatures rose well above 90 in most places, heat indexes skyrocketed above 100 degrees. So, where is all of the autumn-like temperatures? We promise that Wednesday will be the last day of the heatwave. For those who have already put away window air conditioning units and/or are looking for true fall weather, relief is coming later this week. “The same cold front responsible for eventually steering Maria out to sea will be the front that breaks this streak of record-breaking heat across the Midwest and Northeast by the end of the week,” AccuWeather Senior

While summer has officially ended, well over half of the US is having another heatwave, which has brought temperatures well into the 90’s and above. While these conditions MAY be short lived, we released an article a few weeks ago on La Nina. NOAA said La Niña conditions are becoming more likely later in the fall and into the winter, and that could influence the weather conditions in the months ahead. December could be colder than average for parts of the northern and eastern states, but it might not stick around deeper into the winter months, given the expected La Niña influence. A broad swath of the country – from the Midwest and northern Plains into the Southwest
