A sudden fall

Alberta is known for sudden weather changes. The infamous Chinook, for example, brings us a few days of spring-like weather in the deep of winter. Whole snowbanks often melt overnight.

But this fall? This fall took the cake. It was sunshine and flip flops one day, and hot apple cider and mittens the next. On September 1st. Not October, not November. September.

That’s just crazy. It’s gonna be a looooooong winter….

    My family and I were just noticing this just happened to us too, down in Maine. It took 11 days, but the change was from 93 F to 60 F highs.

    I’m in Kansas. The weather changes so fast here you’d have to use gif to change in the first panel.

    No kidding. It’s the same here in central Europe (Czech republic to be specific) save for the sudden warm weather in the middle of winter as you experience. Autumn came here a bit too early than usual too.

    Yeah, same thing in New Brunswick. Hurricane Earl swept through and took summer with it. Temperature dropped about 15 degrees celcius (27 degrees farenheit). Of course, I like fall weather… 🙂

    Seattle has been known for Rain, but the weather Starts to get even stranger around September. August is warm, then it realizes that class is in session soon and Fog, rain, Hail, by about Labor Day, followed by another two weeks of mostly good weather while the college students are still free. That is some very screwy weather, which begs the question Why does it get so freaking hot this far north in the summer on a semi-coastal city?

    It’s been raining in Dethbridge since Saturday, so needless to say I wouldn’t be surprised if it snowed, but I REALLY hope it doesn’t. That would just really make my week if it did that 🙁

    It did that here, too (Southern California)! September and early October are generally some of our hottest times, when we get wildfires, etc.

    Not this year: we’ve had about 10 really hot days total, then the temps just dropped! Ok, so they’re still in the 70’s, but still! I had to get out my heavy comforter one month early!

    In Texas, you don’t get days. You get hours. If you’re lucky. I remember sweating once going into a movie it was so hot. Then, somewhere within the 2 hours of a StarTrek movie, we go outside to find our van is frozen over. We literally couldn’t open the door and we were freezing.

    Out of mild curiousity, was the girl who was a pretty good singer Jackie Evancho? Just guessing. 🙂
