This dune season started out just like every year with warm temperatures in the 80's and sometimes 90's. Seeing 80+ degrees through October is nothing out of the ordinary and Halloween is usually the last weekend for shorts and t-shirts. Then as November arrives, so do the cold fronts. If you look back at the last couple Thanksgiving weekends, the wind blew hard and it was chilly all weekend.
Thanksgiving 2016 weekend "W" storm
2017 proved to be a bit different this year. Over Thanksgiving weekend at Dumont, duners were still soaking up the sun wondering when it was going to feel like "dune season".
As of Monday, November 27th, mother nature finally woke up and did her clean sweep of the dunes and the cool temperatures arrived literally the day after Thanksgiving weekend. The big ruts were cleaned up and the cool temperatures came rushing in. Dune season weather has arrived.
If you look at the weather forecast, the December weather is coming in quick with highs dropping from 80+ degrees to mid-60's. Overnight lows will be toying with the idea of low 40's! December is usually a rather dormant month out at Dumont, so it's a great opportunity for some solitude, campfires, and empty dunes.
