With the below average temperatures this summer, many folks are wondering about the upcoming fall and even winter.
9 On Your Side caught up with a group of kids out at Eden Park, enjoying the last few days of summer. They were sneaking in some last minute fun before autumn arrives.
Cincinnati mom Bridgette Jackson is excited for school to start.
“Kids are going back to school, so that’s kind of exciting. I think they’re ready to go back, so you kind of know the weather’s changing because it’s time to go back to school,” Jackson said.
Football, falling leaves and cooler temperature are all signs of autumn. But what are we expecting this fall weather-wise?
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center, the three-month forecast for September, October and November calls for an above average chance of above average precipitation and temperatures around average with occasional extremes.
Jackson weighed in saying, “Fall is good. I’m not really fond of winter, so I kind of like spring, summer and fall months, but then when it gets real cold, I don’t like it when it’s real cold. I’d rather be warmer, than cold.”
Winter will arrive, but it could be a mild year. The three-month forecast for December, January and February calls for a good chance of above average temperatures and near average precipitation, which means you’ll probably have a typical amount of snow to shovel this winter.
Jackson isn’t a fan of the snow.
“I’d rather not have the snow, but if I had a choice between snow & ice, I’d take the snow before the ice. So I can deal with the cold, but I don’t really want to have to deal with the snow, if I don’t have to.”
