Kickoff temperatures for high school football will be in the mid to upper 60s:
Temperatures will only drop to the low 60s by the time those games end.  Maybe bring a sweatshirt, but in general it’s looking like Phil Collins weather:

It’s back to the 80s for temperatures over the weekend and through the first half of next week…highs on Saturday will reach the low to mid 80s:

We’re likely to set record high temperatures on Saturday and Tuesday, with near-record highs Sunday, Monday and Wednesday as well:
If we do hit 85 on Monday, it will be tied for the warmest Halloween on record!

No rain in sight until Thursday of next week:



Last batch of nerdiness for the week…have a good weekend!
