The day may not be like that, but this is the day that marks the beginning of the fall 2022 season.
The fall equinox occurs tonight. It is the beginning of astronomical fall and the official beginning of the fall season for many. (Meteorological fall officially began on September. 1.)
The equinox is scheduled to occur this afternoon, September. 22 in the evening at 8.03 p.m. (CDT). This is the time that the sun will be right above the equator which means that night and day will be nearly equal around the globe according to NASA.The duration of daylight has been decreasing steadily since the solstice of summer on July 21.Day and night aren’t exactly the same today however. Birmingham will have 12 hours, 8 minutes and 25 second of sunlight today. For Huntsville it’s 12:08:33. And Mobile will be 12:08:06. Mobile 12:08:06.
It’ll be closer than exactly 12 hours on September. 26th in Birmingham (12:00:10), Huntsville (11:59:56) and Mobile (12:00:42)

The only exception will be the extreme south of Alabama that could be experiencing temperatures at or near 90 degrees.
The high temperatures for Friday will be cooler and pleasant with lots of sunshine forecast to be enjoyed by most parts of the state.Since the fall season is here, What other events are scheduled?
