Bright Warm Fall

By Lisa M. Collins

img_4701Forecasters predict a warm Autumn in NYC — which, if the humidity stays away, will be lovely. According to Accuweather, it should be a “promising harvest season for farmers and excellent weather for those attending fall festivals.” Though the turning of the leaves this year might be not as bright or long-lived as in prime years.

NASA of course has reported that each of the first six months of 2016 were the warmest since that agency began keeping┬árecord, in 1880. Warm waters can be conducive to hurricanes. On Oct. 29, we will mark the fourth anniversary of Superstorm Sandy — which took 186 lives and caused an estimated $65 billion in damage from Maine to North Carolina. So there you go — the ups and downs of a warm Autumn.
