Yesterday marked the beginning of fall weather in the desert. While there are no local maples and oaks to change color, an abundance of new winter colors will soon be sprouting up throughout the desert. Gardeners and homeowners will start to plant winter annuals during October that most Americans and Canadians couldn’t dream of planting until next spring.

The monthly high temperature during October averages 91º F (32.77º C). Temps gradually drop to 78º F in November and 69º F (20.5º C) during December.

In case you missed it, I recently posted a link on this blog to Weather Underground’s Monthly Weather Forecast where you can see the seasonal weather expected for any given month on a calendar.

I shot the sunset photo to the right just last night with my iPhone camera on our way to dinner. The heaven’s seemed to be signaling the start of fall. My husband Bill shot the photo at the top at Tradition Golf Club in La Quinta with our Canon EOS 7d camera.
