I'm going to be section hiking from the end of August to the beginning of November? Does anyone have suggestions for where I should go? I was considering either starting or ending at Springer, but don't really have any idea of what the weather would be like.

I can't tell ya where, but my advice would to hike SOUTH, not north. Not based on any experience other than the general weather patterns of North America.

for that time frame, a good section hike would be sobo from Harpers Ferry, you could hit most of the southern Appalachians and the Smokies thru fall color season
