Daily Edge for Sun. Sep. 16

LAST SAMPLE OF SUMMER? A cooler trend is settling in ahead of next Saturday’s official start to autumn and today may be the last shot at 80 for the region for a while.  We talk seasonal shifts and more in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS:

INCOMING! A fall-like feel will dominate the week as after today temps get stuck in the 60s for much of the week.  There’s a suggestion that after a quick warm-up, lows may get into the 30s next weekend and the long range ISUM shows a chance for…dare I say it…snow next Sunday?!

 

OUTGOING. With the passing of summer, current reports through the year’s midway point on July 1 show 2018 shaping up to be one of the hottest years, globally, on record according to NOAA.  Currently on pace with 2010, 2018 may fall in the top 5 warmest years on record by the time we reach December.

 

ENSO IS ON. While August remained neutral over equatorial waters, signals are still in place that El Nino may make an appearance this winter.  Typically, this pattern means warmer, drier conditions for the upper Midwest, and more friendly elements to help North Dakota’s wildlife populations through the cold-weather months.

 

Stay Sharp!
