September 2016 Forecast: Fall Didn’t Get an Invite to the Party

Estimated reading time:1 minute, 5 seconds

As we begin to head into Fall, many are wondering what the weather will be like and how it could impact Fall Foliage. Some are even wondering about the winter already. For now, we will focus on September.

This Summer has definitely been hot and dry. It has been so dry, there are voluntary water reductions in parts of the state. Unfortunately, we expect September to be an extension of this type of weather. Hot and dry conditions are expected to persist. The main source of rain will be along cold fronts, which will be few and far between.

There will be periods of average to slightly below average temperatures, but they will be short-lived and scattered. Above average temperatures will be common this month. Highs in the 80s and even low 90s for much of the month, with lows only in the mid 50s, into the 60s.

Unfortunately, this means Fall Foliage will not be the greatest this year. Many trees will have brown or dark yellow leaves, eventually falling off before turning orange or red. However, that doesn’t mean all types of trees.

Our Fall 2016 Forecast will be issued later this evening, be sure to stay tuned for that. As always, remember to like us on facebook by clicking here for all updates regarding Pennsylvania weather action!

Hello, my name is Josh Adams. This year I am a junior in high school in South Central PA. I have had a passion for weather since I was five or six years old, watching the Weather Channel when the average kid my age was watching cartoons. At age 11, I discovered that there is a significant amount of weather info online from knowledgeable meteorologists to weather models and everything in between. I had the privilege to take part in a group that held informational weather discussions nearly everyday. I gained a significant amount of knowledge in several months back in 2012, constantly studying meteorology for hours each and just about every day. I created Northeast Weather Action in early 2013, just after the previous winter had ended. Things were pretty slow to start, however the winter of 2013-2014 greatly helped grow the page. Several of my forecasts verified nicely across the area. I met Chris during that winter in a facebook group, and we talked often about anticipated weather events. Just before the start of the 2014-2015 Winter, I added Chris to Northeast Weather Action (now Pennsylvania Weather Action), and once again we hit several key forecasts. Chris and I are looking forward to giving you the most up to date and reliable forecasts!
