Is it Indian Summer Time?

Is it Indian Summer Time?

The weather this fall has been quite seasonal here in the Northeast. The past few days have been relatively warm for late October. But is it Indian Summer?

By definition, this warm weather doesn’t qualify here in the Mid-Atlantic States, as we haven’t hit 70 for 7 straight days, yet anyway.

What about your area? Are you experiencing Indian Summer? I believe snow is predicted in the Rocky Mountains, but it’s nice here on the East Coast.

DC metro area.. yep. very warm today. Last time i checked the the thermometer it was 80. Its been nice and cool for quite a while but this 80 degree weather is fooling me. Its late October and it feels like a August-September afternoon! Back in September it was still summer, the air was warm and people were sun baithing but when its late October its not like that anymore. Yes, the air may be warm but you see a very different scene

I agree with you. In central Virginia today was 68 degrees with a nice cool breeze and its been this way the whole month. Temperatures have been generally chilly with us experiencing our first frost (this has helped our very colorful foliage) last week but its supposed to be in the 70s for the next several days. It hasent been over 70 in atleast a week or so. Enjoy it! Us mid atlantic folks know that come November we’re fortunate to be in the 60s and we will be shivering again very very soon

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
