I am not sure about you, but I have started noticing that the leaves are falling like crazy.  I have two huge oak tress in my front yard and they are shedding significant amounts of leaves.  My yard guy from Clarks' Landscaping mowed my grass yesterday morning.  By the time I got home, there was a pile of leaves from the maple tree in the backyard.  My landscaping is full of them.  I have a small layer of them on the back deck.  The leaves are falling quickly.  And while that's a reminder I am going to have to break out the rake soon, it's also a pleasant signal that Fall is on the way!  Well, sound the trumpets, it's about to arrive and, when it does, it's going to bring almost immediate relief from the heat and humidity.

Next Wednesday, September 22nd, marks the official start of Fall and the National Weather Service forecast is absolute perfection.  For the last two months or so, we've had some bouts of pretty hot and humid weather. But there's good news.  Cooler air is headed our way and it's arrival is going to coincide with the arrival of Autumn.  Take a look at this!

I took a screenshot of my weather app this morning to capture the forecast.  Honestly, the weather next Wednesday and beyond looks incredible.  If this forecast holds true, Fall is going to blow up in here looking GOOD!

Of course, you can catch the forecast each morning here at WBKR. Each weekday at 6:20, Angel and I are joined by Ron Rhodes with the Eyewitness News forecast.
