Days upon days of sun? Yep, this was just one day in a string of beautiful weather. Although some clouds may sneak down on our northern horizon in the coming days, sun will dominate. Temperatures on the other hand...
I've decided not to rush the 70s back in here. The upper atmosphere is a little cool, and with a late September sun angle, we won't manage many days over 65 until late week.
Cool mornings are the norm this week. Expect at least 3 nights where the temps may dip near freezing in the 'burbs. This isn't to say that we'll see a killing freeze. There just isn't enough cold air around for that yet. And while we're at it, there is a BIG difference between a frost and a freeze:
Many plants will survive a light frost. Heck, some gardeners claim to be harvesting through much of October in recent years. However, when the freeze comes, it usually wipes out the whole neighborhood. Some leaves even freeze to the trees, then fall off in the morning sun.
Anyway, we're still a good way from that kind of cold. Enjoy the sun and quiet spell.
