With Autumn in the air and around the corner, I figure I start the thread now.

Its my second favorite season. One reason being it's a transition into my favorite season.

A time of color



A time of frost


Post away. :-)

? The leaves began changing here 2 week ago. Thats what latitude does to you. I can't wait to the first sharp frost. The first frost is always a reminder of winter.

Autumn is my favorite season. Can't wait until it cools off!

Often times there's a hint of color in the trees starting in August, though the ball doesn't really get rolling until October.

I've seen a few trees starting to change colors. Not sure if it was because of the drought.

Well Fall is still safely far from Nice at the moment; judging by temps only I'd say we're at the heart of summer (though daylight is declining) with minima struggling to get below 22C (and that's great). Weather forecast for next 4 days is 22/28C, 22/29C, 23/30C, 23/28C. Hardly fall

I'd say fall arrives here when we first get 3 consecutive days with highs below 22C, which generally happens sometimes in October, or sometimes by late September, though it's tricky because highs of 25C have been recorded in late October even after a week of 18C highs...

Anyway, I hope saying this too early won't bring me any bad luck or ruin my plans, but there is a possibility that yours truly shall spend the upcoming fall and winter working in Pune, India or Singapore, both being A-grade climates, especially the former with 30C highs and 9/10 sunshine hours a day for the whole period but nothing is certain yet so we'll see!

Glad to see there is at least one other WWF who is in no hurry to push summer 2012 off the playing field just yet.

Same deal here in the NYC/Tri-State area, fall seems a long way off at this point. The coldest forecast low here I can find for the next 7 days is 66 F (19 C), and highs still well into the 80s F (26 30 C). Real fall here doesnt start until early October, so I can wait. However, I do see some modest change in the solar angle (I/m at 41 north), but nothing I can't handle

There's me too. I'm happy the way things are. NOT looking forward to the season change at all. September is nice, but then things go downhill fast.

Solar daylight change (more length of day for m) is getting noticeable. As my aunt says, "sign winter is coming". Something she's not happy about at all. (Lives in Upstate NY)

Last year, some leaves began to fall off in August, but I don't see it happening this year, it's the warmest start to August for a few years (that's not a sign of how warm this August is, but how very very cool recent August's have been.
