Yellow Autumn

Posted on Oct 27, 2015

Even on the gray and cloudy days of late October there can still be plenty of bright yellow light reflected throughout our landscape. The brilliant golden hues reverberate through our forests as one last hurrah before the beginning of winter grabs at our region. Will we be retaining some of this implied warmth thanks to El Niño? It may be a record-shattering season for the Pacific Ocean which could mean we see above-average temperatures. This can actually spell more snow than usual if the Great Lakes remain open and if the jet stream steers major low pressure systems up the East Coast, threading the needle between temperature gradients. For now we can simply appreciate what is surrounding us and later enjoy whatever may come.
