Fall Is Off To A Fast Start

Good Sunday, folks. Labor Day weekend is here and it’s the time of year many folks start looking forward to fall temps. That’s not the case this year, because the fall temps were here way before Labor Day.

The GFS continues to bring toward the southeast coast…

The Canadian model is similar, with a farther south hit…

Have a great day and take care.
