Looks like there is light at the end of the tunnel! Starting to narrow in on a pattern change following the October 10-12 storm / tropical system. Dare I say the end of the growing season? Maybe even a first snow for certain areas? FV3-GFS temperature anomalies. Obviously not accurate to the latter sections of the loop, but just goes to show the shift of the cold air mass. FV3-GFS 500 mb anomalies. Tropical systems look to play an important role. Usually when the forecast hour is under 200 (180 for the "safe" side) the overall scope is "accurate." At least I hope. . WPC Day 5 surface forecast. Beautiful, beautiful high pressure following in the wake of the storms. CPC Week 3-4 temperature probabilities. I'll drop this here to corroborate the "?" date.
Hey all! Been a while since I added an entry. Hopefully I should be able to get back to regular posting before autumn starts to really ramp up. So I was looking outside my window and did a double take - yellow leaves?! This is on a birch tree (Betula lenta / Black Birch). Quite surprising! I did cherry-pick the most yellow branch, but this is not an isolated occurrence. Numerous birch trees are starting to "turn". Some may bring up the point of stress causing this rapid change, but considering the amount of trees that have started to "turn," and the fact that my location is at 85% of its monthly precipitation with 10 days left, I think that can be ruled out. From a bit of memory I do think that this is usual for the tree, but not 100% sure on it. Let's see if any more harbingers of winter can surface during the upcoming cold wave!
