Today's Weather: Sunny Delight

By Jon Graef in News on Oct 25, 2014 3:00PM

Good morning, everyone, and hope you're enjoying the beautiful weather. The forecast calls for the continuation of the week's warming trend as temperatures reach 70 degrees for the first time since the beginning of October.

Skilling says we're due for a high of 71, which is twelve degrees above normal for this time of year, while Accuweather has a slightly more conservative estimate, saying the high will be 65 degrees. Winds from the Northwest will provide a little gusto, and we're expected to cool off this evening as a set-up to tomorrow's equally sunny, if slightly cooler, day. We have a beautiful weekend in store, and we couldn't be more excited about it. Break out the shorts.
