Indian Summer

Its a phrase that's thrown around quite a bit during the late summer and fall months..."Indian Summer".  It seems like any warm spell that we get late in the year is called an Indian Summer, but there is actually a definition for the phrase.

Indian Summer is defined as a spell of warm weather following the first frost of the season.

So this recent warm spell is certainly an Indian Summer.

Nearly all of eastern Carolina has seen a killing frost over the last week or so, and now temperatures through Wednesday are blasting into the 70s.  So officially, YES, this is the Indian Summer.

Whatever you want to call it, the weather is going to be very mild through Wednesday with temperatures reaching into the middle to upper 70s.  Warm weather lovers - enjoy it because it is not going to last.  By the end of the week high temperatures will fall back to the 50s and overnight lows turn frosty as we dip into the 30s.

See you on TV...

    Since we've not had a frost (12/10), I'd have to call our weather just a long Fall...

    How long before we have to start calling it "Native American" summer? HAHA. But seriously, NC is known for its up and down weather. When can we bring out our winter clothes for good?
