Will We See Our First Snowfall Of The Year In September?
It is officially September which means fall is in the air and summer is coming to an end. It also means that winter will be here before you know it.
I always turn to the Old Farmer's Almanac at the start of every month to see what they are predicting for the month ahead. You can't take it super seriously but it is fun to see what they are forecasting, if only for more reassurance that it may or may not snow.
I was very excited to look at their forecast for September because it is usually the time that we start panicking about snow in our region. The weather is unpredictable and winter can approach us fast! I wanted to see if maybe that was the case this month.
I was also anxious to look after the Farmer's Almanac released their annual winter predictions. They did so recently and shared that our region will be a "hibernation zone" and that we will be seeing an "unreasonably cold" winter. Sigh.
Needless to say, I was antsy to see what the Old Farmer's Almanac would forecast for this month. I breathed a sigh of relief when I read that there is no snow in the forecast but things will naturally be cooling off.
It looks like we will be seeing a little bit of summer and a little bit of fall. While there's no snow in the forecast, temperatures will be cooling off. The Old Farmer's Almanac says things will be cool and mild, with "chilly" conditions rounding out the end of the month.
As for sunshine, it looks like we will start off the month on a rainy foot, followed by sunshine. This back and forth will continue until the end of the month, with periods of sunshine and periods of rain.
It looks like we will be seeing more rain than usual and a slightly cooler average temperature. Yup, fall is definitely going to be in the air! We can expect a pretty mild fall, according to the Weather Channel. They shared that it will be a pretty tame fall for our region.
So what about snow and when can we expect it? The National Weather Service of Duluth just shared the answer to that - sort of. They shared that we usually see our first traceable snowfall in late October but we have had traceable snowfall in mid-September before. I guess anything really is possible when it comes to weather in the Twin Ports.
