Fall is known for everything pumpkin, autumn foliage, and sweater weather. But some pretty serious weather can show up during the season. And if you plan on holding a fall event, you may want to get familiar with weather hazards that could affect your event.
- El Nino
El Niño is a natural climate pattern that’s defined as unusually warm seawater in the central Pacific Ocean but this can have an effect on the weather across the world. It can change the odds of floods, droughts, and heatwaves for different seasons including fall.
- Hurricane Season
The season peaked September, but it doesn’t end until the end of November. Warmer water temperatures and a stronger than average West African monsoon are expected to increase the odds of hurricanes according to Time.com, for the remainder of the season.
This year has been one of the worst wildfire seasons in recorded history. We have seen this most evident with the wildfires in the Amazon rainforest. And the dry air associated with fall will only add fuel to the fire, literally.
- Winter Weather
The calendar may say fall, but mother nature doesn’t care what day it is. The first snowflakes fall in the highest mountains in October then move south.
Fall is known for its windy and breezy weather. However, cooler temperatures can usher in stronger storm systems and as a result, cause damaging winds.
When you hear the word “drought” you think of dryness, hot weather, and cracks. With fall following the dry summer season, it is possible for fall to carry a drier season as well.
Be safe this fall. Not just physically, but financially as well. If bad weather forces you to cancel or postpone your event, make sure you’re not out of potential profits. To find out more about how our policy can help protect your event, give us a call at 888-882-5140!
