Our weather has been truly fabulous here in California's Central Valley. With highs forecasted in the mid-upper 70's thru Friday and sunny skies, we are very pleased...

It is beautiful and sunny today. Temps are only supposed to be in the 40's but it feels warmer with the sunshine. My world today is filled with different shades of blue and white. Very pretty!

Unlike the rest of the country, our Fall has not involved any hail or snow, but that's part of Fall in California, and we like it that way. It is, however, getting cooler, with daytime highs in the the lower to mid 70's though, which is awesome. The next couple of days we are going to have some gusty winds, so our temps will be pushed back down a few more degrees, but it's still sunny and gorgeous...yay.

Snow On It's Way

We have a major snow storm moving into the Denver Area. They are saying we could get 8-14 inches of snow within the next few days. It is very unusual for us to get this much snow this time of year. Good thing I've got that Xterra for this winter... it is continuing to look like it's going to be a rough one.

Where is October?

My last update here was me mentioning how summer was ending.  Well, now it's fall that is missing.   The truth is that we seem to have skipped over October and moved right ahead into November.   It's been chilly here!   October in Western PA should be warmer...in the 60s, but we only got one or two weeks of 60s back in September.   October has been almost all 50s so far and for the next 4 days, 40s.   Where is October?
I guess I shouldn't be surprised by the below average temperatures though, most of our summer was below average too.   I wonder what that means for the coming winter?   Well, I'm no expert so I can only guess that it's going to be a bit below average too.   We'll see!

Summer is most certainly gone in Western PA, because this week, so far has been chilly, and this morning, it was bordering on cold.  Our low last night was said to be about 38F.  I wonder how many more weeks we have to go before we get some snow?  I guess we'll know when it happens. 
At least today it is now bright and sunny out unlike the past 5 or so days.   I like it!

It is about 80 degrees out. It would be a beautiful fall day except for the WIND. We have severe wind advisories in affect until tonight. We had a pile of loose soil delivered this morning. That, in combination with the wind, has spread a fine dusting of dirt everywhere! It is on all of my papers, in my hair, up my nose, everywhere. No fun, no fun at all.

All of this wind is also blowing in a cold front. We are supposed to drop to into the 50's tomorrow if we don't blow away.

It's a balmy 73° here right now in California's Central Valley, with gusty winds. It is soo awesome, I can't even express how awesome it is. From 100° on Sunday to 73° on Tuesday, with highs in the upper 70's to look forward to in the forecast.

FALL IS OFFICIALLY HERE!

All the windows are open, and the old, stale artificial air in the house is being replaced by fresh gusty breezes, probably filled with pollen, dirt, pet dander, and god knows what else. But who cares, it's 73 freakin' degrees!

LAST DAY

Posted by truncated_ashes on Sun, Sep. 27th 2009 at 09:45AM
Today is our last forecasted day of 100° temps here in California's Central Valley. Our high tomorrow is only supposed to be around 84°, then continuing to cool. We are all just holding our breath waiting for this heat to be a memory...

SUMMER TO FALL

Looks like summer temps will remain in California's Central Valley through the weekend, with highs in the mid to upper 90's. The cool down into more Fall-like temps should start on Monday, with forecasted highs dropping into the low to mid 80's. That's something pleasant to look forward to, but I'm still kinda skeptical that it will happen. Summer seems to have an iron grip on us here still...

Well, summer is still holding on here in California's Central Valley, with high temps forecasted to be in the mid to upper 90's for the next week at least. I am soo done with summer. Hopefully, it will end soon...

The weather in Western PA seems to be having trouble making it's mind up as to what season we are having.    Fall doesn't officially start until next week, but in terms of temperatures and weather, fall is already here.  It's been cool, in the 60s and lower 70s and fairly wet.   Summer is definitely on it's last legs, but today and tomorrow are forecast to be near 80 degrees.   It's also quite bright and sunny today which has not been the case on the "fall days".   Perhaps the cool days are cool because of the cloud cover and precipitation, but still, transitions between seasons are frustrating!     I'll say this much...it's not easy to figure out what clothes to wear each day when it's 55 degrees in the morning and 80 degrees in the afternoon!

SEATTLE

I'm cuurently in the Seattle area and am enjoying the awesome ( and fleeting) weather they are enjoying right now, which has been highs ranging from the mid 70's to the mid 80's. Today is a forecasted high of 71 °, perfecto. The rest of the week looks to

Summer is inching away from us slowly here in California's Central Valley. With a number of 100°+ days this last week, it's kind of bothersome. September will be here tomorrow, and the forecast seems to be cooling slowly over this coming week, with forecasted highs to be right around the 90° mark, give or take. Fall will technically be here in several weeks ( ending our standard 3 month range of hot summer temps from mid June to mid September ), and I hope by then the high temps will be strictly relegated to the 80's. Here's hoping...

An unexpected short-term ( theoretically ) warm up has hit us here in California's Central Valley. I had a feeling something wasn't right last night when it just wasn't cooling down. 93° at 9pm is always a bad sign. So, today's forecasted high has been abruptly changed from 88° to 97°. There is no hint of any breeze whatsoever. Good thing I have nothing that I need to do outside today...

Our forecast in California's Central Valley has dropped back down to the "best we can hope for" during the month of August, which is highs right around the 90° mark. It looks to remain this way for the next week at the minimum. We had been staying in the mid 90's, so this will be somewhat of a respite...

I'm new here, but I have always loved the weather.  Even as a little kids I loved it so....I thought I'd join!

I'm in Pittsburgh, PA and I've been very disappointed this summer with the weather.  It's been way too cool and although I like sunny days, the thunderstorm activity has been poor.  August has made up for June and July a little bit at least.  Today it is sticky and humid!  We are expected to get thunderstorms later today, some possibly strong to severe (yeah right!) so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we get a decent one, but preferably once we are home again.    We're losing the heat in a few days again. :(

Our temps in California's Central Valley have been hovering around the mid 90's or so this last week. They look to remain somewhere around there until the weekend when they drop back down to around 90°. This may still seem hot to some of you, but halfway through August and I'm already starting to think about how very soon Fall and it's cooler temps will be here...

Looks like it's going to be warming back up in California's Central Valley for the next several days, with highs right around the 100° mark through Wednesday. Should be cooling back down to the low 90's by Thursday, but still...yuck!
