(KTEN) – Time to break out those sweaters and jackets because fall is almost here (just kidding)!

The Autumn Equinox arrives Thursday, September 22 at 8:03 p.m. amid summer-like temperatures and increased humidity values. The average high for September 22 is in the mid 80s, which will not be felt anywhere in Texoma this year.

The first day of fall arrives Sept 22

The Autumn Equinox marks the point of the year where both the northern and southern hemisphere receive the same amount of daylight. From then on, we will be seeing longer nights and shorter days before the Vernal Equinox, or the Spring Equinox, arrives in late March.

The Autumn Equinox occurs when the Sun is oriented over the Equator in September

Although it will not be feeling like fall anytime soon, at least we can look forward to cooler days ahead as winter creeps closer.

Above average temperatures are likely as fall commences
