how gorgeous is autumn?? I mean, those colours are amazing! I think autumn is the best month scenery-wise, the amazing colours of the trees is something that gives it advantage over the other seasons, imo.

Personally, my favourite season here is obviously winter, but i appreciate autumn very much, cause it basically means summer is over and best part of the year (winter) is coming. Plus, the landscape is always stunning. So, im kinda envy of the northern hemisphere folks who are about to start autumn.

Here, on the other hand, we are starting....spring . I wanna cry.


Temperature-wise, winter ended last day of July. August has been so far very very warm. If it had been super sunny (like it should) i would say we already have been starting spring (with highs between 15 and 22c, like we ve been having), but since its been RAINING ALL MONTH, then i will say this is clearly a transition month, one that cant be labeled as winter or spring, just a transition month. Its warm, but its raining and cloudy all the time, so it cant feel like spring.

Im thinking that by next week, aka the end of the month, we will be into spring already.Ugh

Unfortunately all good things must come to an end.

Even if it's still warm, just remember it's far better than what you'll be dealing with in January.

In addition to yellowing trees, the sunlight and its angle have changed as well. The sun is 10 lower than on the summer solstice. It's a harsher, yellower light now, another sign of fall. I actually like that we have proper nights again, I enjoy darkness.

lol, you are right.

And actually August (well, not this one clearly, cause its raining ALL THE TIME), september, and even october are usually great months. Sunny, lovely, warm but comfortable, not hot yet. So i still have at least 2 months of nice weather. I will complain when real pain begans -

"Bad thing" is that i might get to go to Italy (yayyy) to visit family. Never been to europe, but i have relatives living in the Sorrento zone and i might go there in the beggining of september for 3 weeks. So ill go to european summer and i will miss an EXCELLENT still cool month here in BA and go to Italian heat and sun, and when i come back it will already be october wich is a much hotter month and already has that hot vibe to it. So basically i have to say bye bye to cool weather until next June.

But on the other hand, who cares?? Im going to Italy!! (yayyy)

Humbug. "Not as bad" does not equal "good".

Well, in 2013 you'll be moving to New Hampshire, so at least you have a date to look forward too. Hopefully there will be a full-tilt classic New England winter to greet you, instead of that wimpish stuff they get half the time (more in southern New Hampshire than northern New Hampshire though).

It feels like autumn here, a November like day, windy with drizzl and rain, 18 degrees so a little on the cool side.

Pattern is changing folks for the U.S. September should be below normal for most.

People in the Mid West and NorthEast are going to feel the effect of fall now. In fact, Saturday and Sunday nights will feel just like it. Temps will dip into the 40s and 50s for much of the areas including all the way down to Tenneessee.

Here's GFS NorthEast temps for early morning Sunday. Now's the time to clean those wood stoves. In a few weeks we'll be needing it at night.

I agree, that's my favourite season scenery-wise. Love it when the local park looks like this, usually by late October-early November:

Though I don't want it to arrive ahead of schedule. There's still potential to get summery weather and cooler than normal weather still means boring 20C highs at best. According to the forecast, "summer" hasn't even reached its peak anyway, with a couple 35C days this weekend.

As for Sorrento, at least its weather seems quite predictable:
