Looks like as we roll into October we will start to at least see the ridge get beat back some and maybe try to shift more toward the plains probably still above normal though. Week 2 of the month may be the time to actually cool to near normal and get some rain chances into the region
So far the lack of fall fronts hasn't been an issue for me, since I'm down on the Gulf coast. We usually start getting legit cold fronts in the first 2 weeks of October. But it's the intensity and steadfastness of the heat this late in the year that's been unreal. By now the highs should be dipping down to the 80s at times, not unrelenting lower to upper 90s EVERY SINGLE DAY.
