2023 Fall Temperature Outlook

The Deep South which includes Alabama could experience a Fall with “warmer-than-average,” temps said The Old Farmer’s Almanac. Other areas under this weather pattern include the following sections of the United States:

Midwest: The Lower Lakes (region 6), Ohio Valley (7), the Heartland (10), and the Upper Midwest (9)

Southeast (4), Deep South (region 8), and Florida (5)

Texas-Oklahoma (11) and High Plains (12)

Pacific Southwest (16) and Desert Southwest (14)

Alaska (17)

Advice from The Old Farmer’s Almanac is to not get those sweaters out just yet.

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac “Cooler-than-average” Fall conditions will be felt in the “Intermountain, Pacifica Northwest, Appalachians, Atlantic Corridor, and the Northwest.”

The Weather Channel has forecasted above-average temperatures for Alabama from September through November. Overall, “F​all could start with summer's leftover hot temperatures in parts of the nation's heat-fatigued southern tier.”


2023 Fall Precipitation Outlook

Alabama is included in the sector where we could experience “below average precipitation.” Other locations are included like the “Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Deep South, California, and Pacific states, and the Intermountain region,” said The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

Fall Foliage

Our area is not quite ready for the transition to Fall foliage but we can’t wait to see all the reds, golds, yellows, purples, oranges, and more incredible colors. Currently, the magic season of colors could start in North Alabama in early October and move slowly south. Autumn weather conditions like temperature and rainfall (or lack of) influence fall foliage color outcomes.
