SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – It sure wasn’t one of the hottest summers we’ve ever had. In fact we only reached 90 degrees six times and that was in July and September. We never made it to 90 during the entire month of August.
“I’m not complaining I rather have the weather we had than that hot stifling weather where you can’t work in the yard or anything so it’s been good,” said Frank Cavanaugh of East Longmeadow.
We did have some severe weather. A microburst caused damage in Franklin County earlier this month. We also had some very heavy rain which caused some significant flash flooding a number of times this summer.
Now with fall just a few days away it’s already starting to feel like fall. Low temperatures this week have been getting down into the 30s.
A sign that fall is almost here, the leaves on the trees are already changing color.
“Fall is my favorite time of the year. Love the weather, nice cool temps,” said Mike Colby of Chicopee.
[“What kinds of things do you do in the fall?] I jump in the leaves,” said Abigail Gomez of Enfield, Connecticut.
Our average high temperature as we head into beginning of fall is around 70 degrees and our average low temperature is in the mid and upper 40s.
Autumn officially begins Monday night at 10:29.
