I'm gonna also say this, unless you've actually lived in a city, you can't be a SME on their weather. It's like me going to NYC in August and saying "man it's way hotter than Dallas" for one day. That's a disingenuous argument.


That reminds me of my aunt, who lives in Florida, has never lived anywhere in the north so she doesn't know what experiencing real seasons is like. She visited Minnesota in August 2008, a month that was unusually chilly, and commented on how cold "even in August" it was, and before and since I moved here she made the claim. "Its almost always cold there, very rarely hot." blah blah, because she happened to visit during an unseasonably cold summer.



Right as I entered September, she told me "Now you're in for the cold weather." She was shocked to find that it was 90 this past weekend.

Someone in this thread said that the majority of countries DON'T have four distinct seasons. Is that really true?

The majority of the worlds population lives within 30 of the equator (the tropics and subtropics)

Looks like fall is about to hit the northern cities.

I pity them so. I make it a thing to donate them fresh pumpkin seeds and dried maple leaves.

Well, it's still in the 80s here, no surprise. But thank goodness that by the end of next week the highs should be in the low 70s or high 60s, and the lows should be in the 50s. That's more like it! I knew we were in for some "Indian Summer" in October even though it got crisp for a few days a week or so ago. I thought "Yeah, you're trying to lull us into a false sense of fall but we all know it's going to get hot again." Which it did.

Still very little leaf changing so far - that happens generally in November here. But I'm seeing a few red and yellow leaves.

Looks like after today, highs in Denver will range anywhere from the 40s to 60s. Greenville, does not feel like fall at the moment but next week, highs will be in the 70s.

Mostly 60s and 70s for the next week here in Milwaukee. I could sure do without the rain though. It was in the low 80s a few days ago. I'm over those temps. Bring on fall.

We had our Indian summer in mid-September this year as it rose to the low 90s then it plummeted. We been having 50s, 40s and 30s now. Last October was more mild than this one (with the exception of the last 5 days) but hopefully we wont see any pre-November snow like last year. The leaves are turning and are at like 20% peak. I bet by next week it will be beautiful and I am having company from Texas. It will be cold but hopefully really pretty for them!
