Good Morning!  We continue to deal with summer-like warmth.  Yesterday’s high of 87 was a new record.  It will be a HOT Election day today as we head for the mid 80’s.  (The Record is 87)  But, stand by.  Wednesday will be a much cooler day. Here’s my brief forecast discussion.

Comfortable Thursday, high in the mi 70’s   Friday will be a little warmer.  Comfortable, high in the upper 70’s.   This weekend, we’ll see the coolest air of the season so far.  Much cooler Saturday.  Breezy with highs in the 60’s.  Sunday and Monday we’ll only be in the mid 50’s.  Expect a freeze Sunday and Monday AM.
