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

While Maria still has the potential to wander close to the United States, the core of the hurricane is most likely to remain offshore through next week. Maria already turned on a more northerly course near the Turks and Caicos on Friday. From its position on Friday morning, Maria was about 650 miles southeast of Miami and was on the same parallel as Cape Cod, Massachusetts, or approximately 70 degrees west longitude. While this could be good news for the east coast, the eastern seaboard may not be so lucky. Steering winds may weaken enough to slow the forward speed of Maria. It is during this time when Maria may attempt to drift

Additional hurricanes are likely over the Atlantic and may threaten the United States for the rest of the 2017 season. Hurricane season runs through the end of November, and it is possible the Atlantic may continue to produce tropical storms right up to the wire and perhaps into December. As of Sept. 18, there have been four named systems that made landfall, including Harvey and Irma that made landfall in the U.S. as Category 4 hurricanes. The other two tropical storms were Cindy, near the Texas/Louisiana border in June, and Emily, just south of Tampa, Florida, at the end of July. Maria will, at the very least, have an indirect impact

We will see a warmer weather pattern in the Northeast and over the Atlantic this fall. With it being drier and warmer, the Northeast and northern Plains will be the worst for ragweed. Pollen counts in the Northeast began to rise later than normal this year. But because the fall season is expected to be warmer than average, the ragweed season could last longer than normal despite the late start. Due to the warmer weather and the extreme weather caused by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, the mid-Atlantic and northern parts of the Southeast will see a spike in ragweed growth. The areas affected the most by the hurricanes will see higher-than-normal weed pollen

There are three active storms in the Atlantic currently: Hurricane Jose, Tropical Storm Maria, and Tropical Storm Lee. To better understand the path of each storm, we will break each one down for you. Hurricane Jose will continue to indirectly impact parts of the US east coast this weekend. Even though it’s hundreds of miles off of the Southeast coast, rip currents and elevated surf are impacting the region. It is beginning to move to the north, propagating the waves with it. Once Wednesday rolls around, direct impacts will be felt across parts of Southern New England as Jose likely weakens into a tropical storm. Expect showers and gusty winds, which

Jose will track close enough to the northeastern United States to raise seas and winds, as well as to deliver rain to coastal areas during the first half of next week. People in coastal areas of the Northeast will need to monitor the progress of Jose, which will track northward but remain offshore of the Southeastern states this weekend. Jose to bring significant impact, even if the storm stays offshore A hurricane does not need to make landfall to cause significant adverse effects in the northeastern United States, since the shape of the coast tends to enhance storm effects and trap ocean water.

Unseasonably cool temperatures in late August and early September have pushed the fall foliage season ahead by at least a week. Several district foresters with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources have noted that the peak of fall foliage in northern Pennsylvania could come as early as the last week of September this year. The regional peak of fall color usually begins the first week of October across the northern tier of the state and in the Poconos. By mid-October the peak slides into a central triangular region starting around Stroudsburg, extending west through State College and expanding north and south as it continues west to Pittsburgh and Erie.
