Under 100F for the first time in almost 4 months here in the desert resort of Palm Springs area, clear skies and a dry wind, despite a chance of rain this weekend across California.

My town recorded a gust of 35 mph or so.

Huh.  Apparently, in other parts of the country, 35 mph is considered a strong wind gust.  Here in Kansas, it's rather unnoteworthy.

80 today, with few clouds but winds sustained around 20mph. Should get colder tomorrow (to around 60).
We're relatively parched, haven't had substantial rain in a while, but should get some showers/possible t-storms next week.

For the first time in 2-3 weeks, I received rain. Unfortunately, that rain only lasted for about ten seconds. The first frost of the season may happen tonight.

Trace amt of rain in St Louis, slate gray sky. About 50 degrees and not as windy as yesterday. More rain to come in the next few days.

Hot. Partly cloudy with today's high at 90ish. Typical day you'd see in summer here.

But tomorrow a cold front sweeps down, hopefully bringing much-needed rain and lower temps.

Yesterday got up to 86 degrees.  Today, it's currently 60 and mostly cloudy with the temp not expected to rise.

At a place I'll be traveling to soon, there's a 60% chance of rain.  I barely even remember what rain is.

This whole past week has been very nice, including some much needed rain on Monday, as well as tomorrow.

Colorado's not the only place where you can experience multiple seasons in a matter of a few days...

Here in Houston, yesterday was 90, today is 65, and tomorrow'll be around 80.

this is the time of year when you often leave in the morning with the heat on, and return with the a/c on.

of course, neither works well in my car.. it sorta sporadically turns on and off in either mode.

Probably not the rain. New England is in a drought right now, and rain is bringing things closer to normal.

A slightly nippy 60, made colder by some wind gusts (around 25mph at points). Mostly clear skies. Should get rain Monday.

On my way to Springfield (MO) this past Saturday, I drove through nearly-snowstorm-like conditions.

Because it had been so dry around here for so long, the corn harvest had proceeded uninterrupted since Day 1.  Almost all corn had been harvested, and some farmers were already starting in on soybeans and milo.  Because of this, the ground had a lot of dry, dusty dirt laid bare, and it also had a lot of chaff and cornhusks lying around.  Saturday, we had 20-30 mph winds from the south, with frequent stronger gusts.  While we were driving east along farm roads in far western Missouri, the blowing dust was as thick as fog or blowing snow in places, and the blowing chaff and husks danced across the pavement like large snowflakes.  66 miles later, there were still cornhusks stuck in the hubcaps and other places.

The next day, the weather turned chilly and damp, and it was an entirely different view of the region on the return trip.

These past couple days have been cold, wet and foggy (temps in the upper 40s and 50s). Finally, I have received a good rain.

It's been raining for four straight mornings, although the weather is supposed to improve tomorrow.
I feel like this happens every fall: the the rainiest week of the entire year shows up right when the foliage is at its peak.

Yes, and with any luck, a strong wind comes along too and blows all the leaves off the trees just when you want to be able to see the foliage.

Of course, it's been so dry here for so long that the leaves are going straight from green to brown, with some showing a very brief yellow phase along the way.

Wow. Lucky for us, we've got plenty of reds, yellows, and oranges... just not much sunshine to go with them.

We're having highs under 80F/25C this weekend, it looks like Fall or Autumn has arrived...a month late for us in the CA desert.

Trees are changing (some...it is the northwest), the sun is out, and it's been crisp (upper 40s, low 50s). Beautiful fall weather, and probably my favorite weather combo you can have.
