We are going into a much cooler weather pattern this week and it is right on schedule for the beginning of Autumn. There will be a day or two later in the week with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. Below-normal temperatures and below-normal rainfall is expected from Sept. 22 through Oct. 3. Several inches of rain fell this past weekend in many areas and we could sure use a prolonged dry spell.

Autumn arrives Wednesday afternoon and the feel of fall will be in the air. Autumn begins when the center of the sun crosses the earth’s equator and it will continue getting lower in the sky until the first day of winter. The sun will set directly in the east on Wednesday and rise directly in the east while day and night will be almost equal length.
