The climatological start to fall has actually felt like fall the last few weeks but it won't last.
That's according to Nicole Albano at the National Weather Service in Lincoln who told Regional Radio on the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday warmer temperatures should move in shortly after the weekend.
Looking ahead to next weekend for the Apple n' Pork Festival, temperatures are looking above normal but still comfortable. However, there are some chances of rain but she points out, that is still a ways off to know for sure.
September has started very mild and Albano indicates that is thanks to a trough of air that is coming in from the northeast keeping temperatures very seasonal to this point.
Albano indicates September has also been dry so far and that is taking Illinois back towards moderate drought conditions. We'll have more on that later this week on Regional Radio.
