I don't know the origin of the term, but I've noticed lately what
seems to be a change underway in its usage.  I've always assumed that
it meant a brief return of summer-like weather in the fall, after having
had cooler weather.  Lately, however, I've heard it used to refer to
the first cool days in fall.
