After a hot summer, we will be in for more normal temperatures in the months ahead.

After a pretty hot summer, we are all ready for a fall cool down. But after what has felt like a year of warmer than average temperatures, will that trend continue in the fall? Not this year.

According to the Weather Channel, the Northeast can expect close to average temperatures for October, November, and December.  Month by month that will mean slightly above average temps in October, with November looking average, and December could see temperatures slightly below average.

The December cooling trend would actually line up with recent winter weather outlooks from the Farmers' Almanac and the Old Farmer's Almanac. Both forecasts are calling for cold and snowy winters, which has not been the norm during our last couple of Upstate New York Winters. Both have been underwhelming if you love the cold and snow! Maybe that colder December is pointing to the year we buck the mild winter trend.
