I do not need to tell any of the ATS members who live in the East and Central part of the United States that yesterday and today is just the first
taste of our autumn and winter season. A cold front moved down through Florida even where I live and the temperatures are right now at 56°F as I type
this with the low forecast tonight to be 45-49°F not to mention the wind chill which accompanies it with winds gusting to 17mph. Sure I know 40s and
50s are nothing to most Americans but for us here in Florida it is a surprise for this to occur so early especially considering that Friday’s high
was 92°F and the night before did not drop below 74°F.
The front as of yet has not reached the eastern seaboard so Boston, New York, and Atlantic City are still pretty warm but if you live in Jacksonville,
New Orleans, Memphis, St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Atlanta, or Buffalo you know how the weather has changed.
Most people hate the cold weather and will say “not already!” but as for me I love the cold, temperatures below 60°F is what I enjoy. How about
you, what is your take on the first cold snap of the fall season?
