SEATTLE - In the final hours of summer 2016, you may be asking, where did summer go this year? But believe it or not, Q13 FOX Meteorologist Walter Kelley says it was a "good" summer that was actually warmer than normal.

Seattle saw 36 days above 80 degrees Fahrenheit. In an average season, we would see 24 days above 80 degrees.

Pacific Northwest residents also saw seven days above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The average is four days above 90 degrees.

However, Kelley says this summer wasn't as hot as last summer where we had 53 days above 80 degrees.

Goodbye, summer. Hello, fall and winter!

Kelley says we should see a regular fall and winter. We might trend a bit towards a cooler and wetter winter but not as bad as some predicted.

Fall in Seattle begins Thursday, September 22 at 7:21 a.m.
