October 28: Record Warmth, Daily Links

WEATHER

Patchy dense fog is burning off this morning, leaving us with partly cloudy skies the rest of the day.  Temperatures will reach the upper 70s this afternoon:
friday-highs

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:
saturday-highs

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!

Assuming those forecast temperatures are accurate, October 2016 will go into the record books as the 4th-warmest October on record in Nashville.  When you look back to September 1, we’re off to the 2nd-warmest start to “meteorological autumn” (Sep-Oct-Nov) on record!  And we’re not alone in the abnormally warm start to fall:

No rain in sight until Thursday of next week:
