Today's Weather: The 5 D's

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on Oct 22, 2009 1:00PM

Dark. Damp. Dank. Dreary. Dismal. The 5 D's. That's what today is. Cloudy skies and plenty of rain to go around. And it might be around for a while. Temps will ever so slowly fall throughout the day, reaching 50 by late this afternoon, with the rain continuing overnight and lows in the upper 40s. Frisky west winds will hit 15 mph at time.
