Wow is right! Here in Maine most of September is like a slow burn toward fall/winter. Honestly the thing that I notice is the dwindling daylight more than the cooler temps because the sunshine is still brilliant & warm.
October is when things really start to get dicey. We usually get our first “killing” frost around the first/second week of Oct. Around the third week of Oct things really go downhill temps and daylight wise. By the end of the month we could see measurable snow. November is just plain nasty as far as weather goes…for every “nice” day (sun and “maybe” in the 40s) it always seems like we get about 4 bad ones…a very wet, dreary & dark month.
My ranking of months weather wise from best to worst (might surprise some people):
Those last 3 are the pits for me.
