Looks like thunderstorms coming on Tuesday, but by Thursday there'll be a change.

From NWS Forecast Discussion:

High pressure will be in control at the surface beginning
Thursday and for several days fostering drier and cooler
conditions for late this week into early next week. Highs will
drop from the 70s and 80s Wednesday to the 60s and 70s which is
more in line with normal values for this time of year.

Precipitable water values generally drop below 0.60" or less
than 50% of the climatological normal during this time so there
should be some nights when we will see ample radiational cooling
as the high shifts closer overhead. Overnight lows will drop
into the 40s and 50s with some chilly mornings in the higher
elevations. This will be the first taste of fall for many
places.

Probably just a coincidence, but a couple days ago I finally got tired of looking at my old Karavan sled trailer that I retired three years ago after a spring collapsed. The metal pad on the axle that supports the spring had rusted out, so it's been sitting out back and rusting since then. I put it up on sawhorses and discovered that the trailer looks surprisingly good underneath, so a repair may be happening. A stretch of cool, dry weather may provide the energy needed to get it back on the road, as well as some other projects that need doing. Two weeks of cool weather and I might establish some bragging rights, although that isn't likely.

Saturday morning (September 2) was our first frost for the season in Loudon. We had a low of 34° at 6:00am on two thermometers. The sensors for those thermometers are about 6' above ground level and very near the house. Out in the gardens it got cold enough to blacken the leaves on squash and sweet potato plants, and our vehicles and lawn had a coating of frost.  Yep, got to call it the first frost for Fall-2017, and the earliest frost in several years. Whitefield Airport recorded 32° Saturday morning, so I'd guess the gardens up there are gone.

November 13, and the ground in Loudon is white. Probably not for long, but for right now.

April 16, 2018

Tax Day, sleet, freezing rain, and snow. 

It will be better tomorrow.

4:00 Edit: It may well be better tomorrow, but today ain't over. Look at the right-hand side of the bottom picture in this post. That tall pine just to the left of the portable shed is now down on the ground. Wind is gusting to about 30 mph out of the east. Tree snapped 15 feet up, so there's about 70 feet on the ground.

I guess I needed another project. I'll be the Kindling King.

The consensus weather forecast was for snow/rain and clouds today, and the sky this morning did give warning. Turned out to be a false alarm.

 I was a bit late to pick up the best colors, but not too bad.

Should be close to 90 today, but there's this for the weekend from the NWS.

Frost possible...particularly in the northern valleys Saturday night.
