Taste Of Fall As Summer Ends By Steve MacLaughlin

In 2008 the spring was exceptionally stormy and the summer was exceptionally hot in North Texas. But the last week has been incredible. Since Tropical Storm Ike moved through the area on Saturday, our weather has been perfect.

Autumn officially begins Monday at 10:44am.

Today is the 7th straight day below 90 degrees and the 7th straight day with temperatures below normal.

Including Friday, it has now been 36 days since we have hit 100 degrees; that was on August 14th. That was the 30th (and probably final) of the year. The hottest two days this summer got up to 107.

The normal ‘last’ 100 degree day at DFW is August 25th. But the latest ever was October 3rd, 1951. So until October 3rd, there is still that statistical chance. That being said, it doesn’t look likely this year. We will be warming up a bit, but only to just above normal through the weekend. Right now, the normal high is 87; the normal low 66.

Hope everyone has a great weekend,

Steve Mac
