Will Upstate New York’s Summer Heat Linger Into Fall?
It has been a hot and humid July in Upstate New York. Will the heat continue in the months ahead?
Yes, and no.
You may recall back in March we reported that the Farmers' Almanac predicted an 'unrelenting' summer for New York. And while the temperatures have not hit extreme levels we have definitely had our share of heat and humidity in July. After the AC at our house ran all month, my eyes popped out of my head when I got my latest National Grid Bill!
Over the last week or so we have gotten more seasonable temps for Upstate New York which has translated to some perfect summer days. Will that trend continue to wrap summer or will the heat make a late-season comeback heading into fall?
Weather Channel Reveals Late Summer and Early Fall Outlook
In the months ahead, temperature wise it will be kind of a mixed bag for New York and the Northeast in general. Here is what we can expect according to the Weather Channel:
For the final full month of summer, the Weather Channel says we will "escape lengthy periods of heat" and temperatures will be slightly cooler than or near average.
In September, we will have some of that summer heat return with temperatures slightly above average.
Good news if you love autumn: Seasonal temperatures will be the norm for October with temps a little cooler than average.
