For the past two weeks we have had a cooling spell with some rain for the first time in months here in the Willamette Valley.

Yesterday the high was 91°. Today it is forecasted to be 94°. Next week we are forecasted to drop down to 68° as our high and 46° our low.

Looks like this may be our last week of hot summertime temps.

Per the Farmers Almanac weather forecast:

Cool, dry conditions should take hold during the opening days of fall, followed by a spell of biting cold and some unsettled weather in November and December.

Most regions should see some extremely pleasant days, punctuated by rain, through much of September and October. Halloween will be unseasonably cold this year for the Eastern states and provinces – so dress those little ghouls and goblins up in something warm. Farther west, we expect some light snow over the Rockies, and east into Texas, with rainy conditions in the Northwest, for Halloween.


Thanksgiving could coincide with a wintry storm moving across the Central and Eastern States, including up to six inches of snow for the Great Lakes region. Elsewhere, the holiday weekend will be blustery and cold.

As fall begins to blur into winter, we are red flagging December 16–19 as dates for major weather disturbances which could deliver widespread wintry precipitation.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
