NATIONAL SUMMARY The first day of autumn was brought in with a fall-like feel to it over the Northeast yesterday as temperatures ran 10 to 20 degrees lower than they did the day before across the region's interior. The drop in temperature was not nearly as significant closer to the region's coast, only running 4 degrees lower in New York City than the day before. Below-normal temperatures were also experienced over much of the Midwest and down into the Tennessee Valley. Not all of the East experienced below-normal temperatures for the first day of fall with highs along the coasts of the Southeast climbing to near 90 F. Showers and thunderstorms were seen over this area as well with over an inch of rain falling in Melbourne, Florida. A few storms even produced wind gusts strong enough to bring down trees in Ridgeland, South Carolina and Coney, Georgia. Temperatures ran above normal across much of the Plains, Rockies and the West with a zone of spotty showers and thunderstorms stretching from New Mexico to Nebraska and over Oregon. Much of this shower and thunderstorm activity held off until the afternoon hours with some of the heavier storms causing flash flooding in Las Cruces and Silver City, New Mexico.
