Today is the last full day of summer 2016.
Fall officially begins Thursday at 9:21 a.m. CDT.
High temperatures will be approaching record levels in the Quad Cities today. I’m forecasting a high of 90° and the record high is 92°. That was established just nine years ago.
Temperatures are running 4.2° above average in the Quad Cities for September. As of now, this is the second warmest September on record.
The average monthly temperatures is 71.7°.
However, it’s not likely to stay that high on the ranking with more than a week to go in the month.
Cooler temperatures are expected next week. We could have lows in the 40s by the middle of next week.
