GREENSBORO, NC -- It's been called "Aug-tober," the case of our missing fall air during the month of October. Slowly, but surely, the chill of crisp fall air will return to the Piedmont over the next week.
Our humidity has been record setting this week. We've seen overnight lows in the upper 60s and low 70s, setting records each day since Sunday for warmest nights on record. In fact, Monday set a record for the warmest low temperature in October history in the Piedmont.

A weak cold front pushing through will bring some slightly less humid air for Thursday, Friday and the weekend. Still, we'll have enough moisture in the air for it to be noticeable, and the warmth will stay with us.
If it's true fall air you're looking for, you'll need to wait until next week. A strong cold front will be marching through the Carolinas on Monday, bringing a dramatic temperature and humidity drop to the entire southeast.
How much of a drop? Temperatures will fall into the 40s for lows on Tuesday and Wednesday, with highs only in th 60s.
