Fall arrives at 10:21 AM on Thursday, September 22nd to be precise, according to the National Weather Service.

That day is called the Autumnal Equinox, and like the Spring Equinox, on or about March 21-22nd, it marks the time the sun shines of equal length day and night, directly on the equator.

Here at RoseLake Estates in Pendleton, central Indiana, we’re thousands of miles from the equator, so our days and nights are far from equal – but they are as close as we can come to that.

So yes, our days are not only getting shorter, but colder. How cold will temperatures be in September? The National Weather Service says average highs in September hover around 80 degrees. The average lows are about 53. That’s a 30 degree spread – but a very comfortable range.

When can we expect the first snow fall in central Indiana this fall?

October 18th 1989 was the earliest on record but we only recorded a scant 0.2” of snow. The average first snow fall date is November 19th, and heavier snows generally don’t occur until mid-December.

As one of the nicest, quietest and most affordable manufactured home communities in central Indiana, RoseLake Estates is anticipating a beautiful lush fall on our quiet community. Enjoy!
