We are officially 4 days into fall and it sure has been feeling like it, with a morning chill and pleasant afternoons. Not only does it feel like fall but it will begin to look like it once the leaves reach their peak color which is usually around mid to late October.
The intensity of color each year depends on the amount of rainfall, warm days and cool nights. The fall foliage should be breathtaking this year. The best time for leave peeping is October and November but while you wait for the leaves to change, break out the cocoa, hot apple cider, boots and leather coats and let the nostalgia of autumn take over!

All-time record high temperatures were set at several location in south central Alaska Monday afternoon.
A potent area of low pressure will move along this rim and drop down the front side bringing a round of severe weather to Maryland Wednesday evening/night through Thursday afternoon (timing is still in question).
As the moisture from this tropical low moves north it will interact with a trough out to the west. This will increase Maryland's rain chances late Thursday into early Saturday morning.
Meteorologists with the National Weather Service and researchers from the University of Oklahoma continue to investigate the May 31st El Reno tornado that hit just west of Oklahoma City.
No big shocker here. Oklahoma shares the top of the list of states with the most tornadoes rated either F5 or EF5 since 1950.
