Weather Talk: Temps could be warmer than average for a whileThe average temperatures trend steadily downward during the fall. However, the actual weather’s descent into winter is less smooth.
The average high temperature, which was 80 degrees as late as Aug. 23, is 71 degrees today and will fall into the 50s by mid-October.
Actual weather is never so steady. September has been mostly above average so far. Half of September’s days so far have been at least 80 degrees and one (last Friday) was 92 degrees. The weather will certainly turn cooler the next few weeks. The sun’s position in the sky dictates that. But indications are that temperatures will remain largely warmer than average for a while.
When, at some point, the weather switches to below-average temperatures, it will come as a shock. It always does.
