Wednesday’s autumnal equinox heralds the arrival of a darker and colder season

Summer often seems to last deep into September these days. However, the autumnal equinox — which arrives Wednesday at 3:21 p.m. Eastern time — is a reminder from Mother Nature that fall is finally on our doorstep. We are now seeing just over 12 hours of daylight, having reached the halfway point between our longest and shortest days of the year.

Autumn equinox: When is the first day of fall 2021? What you need to know.

It’s almost time to dig out those Halloween decorations and extra blankets. The official start of the fall season of 2021 is on the way. This year, autumn begins on Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2021, in the United States and elsewhere in the northern hemisphere, because that’s the date the autumn equinox arrives as our weather transitions from summer to fall. (On the southern side of the globe, the seasons are moving from winter to spring.)

Fall begins with storm rocking Lake Erie coast

MARBLEHEAD — The autumn season kicked off with quite a wet start as a rainstorm slammed the western Lake Erie coast once again Wednesday, the first official day of fall. While much of Northwest Ohio , including Ottawa County, was under a flood watch beginning Tuesday night, continuing through all of Wednesday, it appears the area avoided any major flooding damage similar to what followed several storms that rocked the coast earlier this year.

A warm and hazy start to autumn

Some clouds and haze to start our first morning of autumn. It’s not our prettiest skies with light winds and the returning smoky haze. There could be a light shower in our area later today, but any rain we might see should be brief and likely south of Las Vegas. Temps will definitely stay above normal to finish the week and heading into the weekend. But Sherry’s most accurate #WeatherNOW forecast does have some cooler more fall-like weather showing up next week.

Autumn weather is officially here

We are going into a much cooler weather pattern this week and it is right on schedule for the beginning of autumn. There will be a day or two later in the week with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. Below-normal temperatures and below-normal rainfall is expected from Sept. 22 through Oct. 3.

Mother Nature got the memo, delivering a real blast of Fall air to the region! daytime readings stayed in the 50s across much of the region Wednesday.

Legends of the fall: is autumn all it’s cracked up to be?

Depending on your view, autumn has a bad rap, or an easy time of it. Overdue a renaissance or passé to even admit liking at all. As a child, I considered autumn the red-headed stepchild of the calendar. It was the end of summer. It was back to school. It was a period in which blue skies turned white and the sun started showing up less and less, like texts from a friend you’d made on holiday. Then, in a strange move, the government would surgically remove an entire hour of sunlight, presumably at the behest of whatever grisly nest of vampires came up with daylight savings time.

Wet, windy start to autumn

Light to moderate rainfall arrived in central Indiana last night and the steady showers continue to fall early this morning! The storm system producing the showers will continue to travel northeast over Ohio and keep the rain chances around throughout the day. More than 2” of rain has been reported along Indy’s east side and along the I-69 corridor (data collected at 6:30 a.m.) An additional 1” to 3” will be possible by Thursday evening.

Autumn encapsulates the emotions of life

As I slipped on my jacket to prepare for the slight dip in temperature, I realized that the dawn of autumn was upon us. Along with it will come the nuanced feelings of warmth and comfort — both symbols that I associate with the changing season. The leaves wither away, and as I tune into the natural world around me, I feel the recherche feeling of introspection that comes and goes. A feeling that often signifies a period of growth.
