At 6:56 p.m. today, the seasons officially change, but Sunday's cool temperatures caught fall trying to sneak in early.

Sunday's high of 67 degrees Fahrenheit occurred at 4:40 p.m., and the low of 50 degrees Fahrenheit was clocked in at 6:44 a.m., according to data from Hagerstown weather observer Greg Keefer.

North winds gusting to 19 mph at 1:15 a.m. Sunday plucked the leaves off Hagerstown trees.

Last year proved to be the wettest September on the books with 10.54 inches of rain - 3.2 inches from Hurricane Fran.

Precipitation totals 4.67 inches so far this month.

Last year's first frost was on Oct. 30. The average first frost date is Oct. 6. The average date for the first freeze is Oct. 13.
