It is the first day of September — the beginning of fall on the calendar, followed sooner or later by winter. After six spring and summer months of light, dry and warm (no, even very hot) weather, the same period of darker, more wet and colder weather awaits us.
For some outdoor enthusiasts, this means checking the forecast more often to avoid uncomfortable conditions. Although for some, winter means stronger winds for sailing, larger swell for surfing, and a lot of snow for skiing and snowboarding.
Either way, it doesn't matter if you're a hater of fall and winter or a fan. To help you get ready for the new colder outdoor season and make it a success, in this post we have collected a dozen thematic articles about meteorology and some fall-winter sports, as well as some helpful guides on how to use it all in the Windy.app.
