Yesterday's high temperature here was in the 80sF (25C) with a heat index of 90F (30C). This morning when I let the dogs out it was 61F (16C) and our high is only supposed to reach 72F (21C). The low overnight tonight is forecast to drop to 49F (10C). I would say Fall has finally fallen here in eastern NC. The photo is from Pixabay. I chose this because...pretty girl on autumn leaves. Has Fall found you yet? (Or Spring, for my southern hemisphere friends?)

40s overnight and 60s during the day are my kind of Fall days.

Frost already. Then again, I remember seeing snow in early October in New Hampshire way back when during my one semester at Plymouth State.

My son is in North Dakota and they've already had a good bit of snow and days where it didn't get above freezing. Tough conditions for a boy raised in the south.

Yeppers DW it is finally here and in full force I might add-- although there is still so much GREEN that a few more nights in the 40's and the leaves will reveal their autumness !

We have a couple of nights of the mid to upper 40s this weekend and then by the end of next week several in a row if the current forecast holds up. That should put an end to our long spell of green and, hopefully, an end to mowing the lawn until next spring.

38 isn't too bad for overnight but it would be nicer if the day was a little warmer by say 15 or 20 degrees.

Was 41F the low or high for the day? I wouldn't mind if it was the low temperature. If it was the high temperature, no thank you, I'll stick with our 70 degree days for now.

The vibrant color changes are one of the things I miss about fall living here in eastern NC. We get some foliage but not much.

@DWDavis That is one thing I really did not like about living in the south the colors do not change like they do where I live now.

@DWDavis The place where I stay now is Bangalore and it is pleasant through out year with constant drizzles and showers. But I grew up in Delhi in North India which has extreme temperatures in Summer and winter. It can be horribly hot with temperature soaring at 47_48 degree Celsius in summer and it can drop down to 1_2 degrees in winter.

@arunima25 I cannot imagine daily temperatures in the high 40C range, and I expect it is very humid as well.

I know you will welcome spring as it comes with the longer days and shorter nights, warmer temperatures and blooming plants.

@DWDavis That's true. It would be lovely to have the long twilights that Ireland gets (our son is there) but unfortunately we don't get those.

@JudyEv Long summer evenings was one of the things I enjoyed most about living in New Hampshire the few years I spent there. Not quite the long twilights Ireland enjoys but much more than we have down here in NC.

I would take the 72.....we were at 32F this morning when I took my son to school. Fall has found us here for sure!

32F does not sound fall like to me. For us, that would be downright wintery.

@MommyOfEli2013 We are praying for a mild, snowless winter after the hurricanes we've had blowing through here. We cannot afford any more days out of school.

It fell very quickly, Thursday we had a high in the 80's, and i went to sleep with the air conditioning and woke up to the low 40's tonight we get to the 30's and a high Saturday of 50, and it will be like that way until the really cold weather!

In my book lows in the 30s and highs in the 50s is the really cold weather.

Here in eastern NC we have Fall in the form of temperatures dropping and leaves falling but don't get the vibrant colors they get in western NC or up in the north.

I just checked it's fifty seven here right now. I wonder if fall is here too or if it's just a cold snap following the hurricane.

For you, it may be a cold snap. Y'all don't see many days in the 50s do you, even in winter?

@DWDavis we do. Last year we had several days in the teens and twenties. And since this summer was so hot, this winter will be bad again..I don't mind it so much, since I grew up in Oregon. But people here bundle up if it's under 70..
