An active jet stream means fall weather is on the way

EAST TEXAS (KTRE) -

The month of October will get off to an unseasonably warm and humid start, but it won't stay that way for long.

Our weather pattern is starting to become more active as the jet stream will be starting to take dips southward from Canada into the Plain states over the next couple of weeks.

Up to this point, we have had a couple of weak "cold" fronts move through, but other than some beneficial rainfall, we have not yet felt the cool autumn breeze that many of you have been waiting on.

The wait will not be much longer, though, as our first significant fall cold front looks to arrive this upcoming Saturday.  This is a front that you will certainly notice once it comes through as it will contain a quick drop in temperatures and contain those gusty, northerly winds.

Are you excited yet?  In looking at our longe range models, it appears a parade of cold fronts will be moving into East Texas through the first half of October, keeping our temperatures below normal. 

As I've said before, September is the month where fronts try to push through East Texas, and in some cases, they do.  However, October is the month where our cold fronts become more noticeable and pack more of a punch.
