Fall models show we’re in for a continued La Niña climate pattern — for the third year in a row (which isn’t common). Expect another round of unseasonably cooler months ahead, with the full effects touching down sometime between October and December. So, button up.

🌡Temperature

While most of the US is showing a strong likelihood of higher-than-average temperatures, a large portion of Washington has an equal chance of higher or lower temperatures.

🌧Precipitation

Bring those raincoats back out. Seattle has a 33-40% chance of higher than average rainfall this autumn.

🗓By the month: September

The cooling off begins with daily high temperatures averaging around 67°. Shortly after the fall equinox on Thurs., Sept. 22, we’ll start to notice the shortening days — but will still see 12 hours of daylight. Soak up the sun while you can — the Big Dark is looming.

🗓 By the month: October

October plunges us down into a daily high temperature average of 59°. Definitely sweater weather by this point.

🗓 By the month: November

It’s certainly turkey-carving season with a daily high temperature average of 51°. But this month also brings us the dreaded end of Daylight Saving Time on Sun., Nov. 6. On this day, we’ll see a 7 a.m. sunrise and the return of the infamous 4 p.m. sunsets. Yikes.
