Another day, another start to a new month! September is here now, which basically means summer is done and fall is here. While Labor Day is often seen as the unofficial end of summer/start of fall, it technically starts on September 23rd when we celebrate the autumnal equinox. You could also argue fall started at the end of August when many coffee shops brought back their pumpkin spice flavors.
This month is certainly a transitional month as average temperatures overall continue to cool. Here in Omaha, the monthly average high is 78 degrees. On the flip side, the normal low during September is 54 degrees. (Perfect football weather, GBR!) For rainfall, Omaha typically receives 2.68 inches out at Eppley Airfield.
Looking ahead to the rest of the month and what’s in store for us, the Climate Prediction Center shows signs of temperatures trending a bit cooler than average overall for much of the northern Central Plains and Midwest. Keep in mind, Omaha typically reaches 90 degrees three times during September.
Although Earth, Wind & Fire said, “never was a cloudy day” in “September,” with chances for above average precipitation it suggests we will see several cloudy days. Don’t fret too much, since we will still see plenty of good weather days, giving us good reasons to be “dancin’ in September.”
