Fall Will Be Warmer Across the US This Year, Forecasters Say

Keep the sweaters in the closet and put the pumpkin spice lattes on hold.

Forecasters are anticipating an unusually warm fall this year in large parts of the U.S. throughout September, October and November.

Things will be particularly balmy in the Northeast and in the West, including California, Nevada, Oregon and parts of Washington, Paul Pastelok, a senior meteorologist at Accuweather, told TODAY.

“It will be fairly mild, not extremely mild, but a couple degrees higher than normal,” said Pastelok. “There will be more days where you can be outside and do things.

“It doesn’t look that rough for kids who will be going back to school,” he added.

The East, South, and areas including the Northern Plains and parts of the Rockies is also likely to see higher temps, according to The Weather Company.

One area of exception is the Pacific Northwest, which could see cooler-than-average temperatures.

In Boston, for instance, the average temperature this September to November will around 57 degrees, said Pastelok.
