Apparently We’re Not Gonna Feel Fall Here In South Florida Until Like A Week Before Christmas

Autumn may officially begin on September 22 or 23 each year, but it often feels like the weather takes a few weeks to get the memo. Here at TIME Labs, we were curious when it begins to actually feel like fall around the country. To do so, we looked at 21 years of data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, defining autumn as the first five consecutive days in which the high was lower than 70 percent of a region’s yearly range in temperatures. (For example, a place with yearly lows of 10 and yearly highs of 90 would have a “fall line” of 66 degrees, which is 70 percent of the distance between those extremes.) Enter your city or county below to see when you can expect cooler weather in your neighborhood.

All you lucky mother fuckers north of Orlando better appreciate the weather. I don’t want to hear about how cold it is when december and January rolls around because I’ll most likely will still be getting bit by mosquito from wearing shorts outside because it probably will still be warm as fuck here. If this super robot algorithm that detects when its going to be fall is correct by location then i have no reason to look forward to being outside in the near future. As much as I do like some parts of being here in South Florida, Get to drive, open spaces, dont have chaos in the streets with bums. Its nice. But then again I go outside and i start to sweat profusely just from walking my dog. But I’ll take 70’s at this point, its been 80 – 90s with rain and shit and i got to deal with bugs and my dog hates being outside in the heat for long. In fact i think i could settle with 70 year long with no dip or increase if it meant no more summer furnace of the sun beaming down on me.
