Default Hints of early Fall at higher elevations?

Long spring, early fall? The locals are talking.
Crystal clear here with high winds the past few days. Makes me wonder too.

Very clear here too, after the morning haze dissipates...first real non-storm breeze today, though
still very warm and humid, up here.

I heard that 'wives's tale' the other day downtown...no idea. Been here a decade+ and it is difficult to predict upcoming situs, and I can't remember how it 'was last time'.

Autumn is the best time in the Mtns, imo...so bring it on!

asked my elderly Mom from way back in the mountains and she said yes to the saying. However, if you really want to know, get the Farmer's Almanac. Take that to the bank.

Everyone says that and I love autumn too, but spring is my favorite. I think I'm alone in that.

Well, Autumn is my fave, but I like Spring too...though 'spring' up here is usually very late April through mid May, as there is very little 'green' sticking up out of the ground/on the trees until then.

Fwiw, we had our first 'morning low' of less than 65 degs up here today, in more than 6 or 7 weeks...maybe the 'heat' is dissipating.

If you're observant you can see the trees beginning to change in July. The outer limbs become a lighter, yellower green. Then isolated leaves begin to turn yellow.

The last 2 weeks of July are traditionally the hottest and most uncomfortable where I am. Into August you start noticing the cooler nights and lower humidity days for sure.

Bring on the fall - my favorite time of year!
