We're quickly approaching the downward trend towards Fall and we're starting to get several requests for predictions or outlooks for the Autumn season. Our fall season typically lasts from September through November. So what can we expect here in East Texas?
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has released their fall outlook for the country. They develop these outlooks by comparing climatology for areas along with upcoming forecasted patterns. So let's break down what this means for us here in East Texas.
We'll start off with a look at forecast precipitation across the area. Some good news shows up in this category for us. NOAA is indicating that we will have a higher than normal chance for receiving above average precipitation totals during the fall months. What does this mean?
Well, it basically means that the upcoming pattern (weak El Nino) will help to send more rain producing systems across East Texas, allowing for us to have above normal precipitation through the fall.
Several locations here in East Texas are still well below normal with rainfall so this will be very beneficial. Let's keep our fingers crossed!
Now to the temperatures. NOAA is forecasting that East Texans will enjoy a higher than normal chance for average temperatures. What does that mean for us?
Attached is a breakdown of the temperature trends for us here in East Texas for average high temperatures from Now through late November.
Temps will slowly cool from average highs in the mid 90s to average highs only in the mid 60s by November. This means some days will be cooler, and some days will be warmer, but overall our temperatures on average are on the downward trend.
Get ready for fall weather here in East Texas!
