First Signs of Fall
The first high mountain snowfall of the season was reported this weekend in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming. Another strong cold front will move from the Pacific Northwest and into the Northern Rockies and Northern Plains on Wednesday bringing a large shot of cooler temperatures and rain (along with some high mountain snow).
Cooler air will overspread the Midwest and portions of the northern and western Corn Belt by the end of the week. As you can see in the graphic below cool temperatures will invade the northern and western areas of the nation. The feel of fall will be in the air from Rockies to the Northern Plains this week.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, temperatures will be much warmer than average in the central and southeastern areas of the nation over the next week to ten days. Notice the large area of red and orange (representing above normal temperatures) over the Southeast, Gulf Coast and the central and eastern Corn Belt areas.
As we head into the second week of September, it will feel like fall in the west and summer in the east!
