More record warmth today and tomorrow

Posted: Updated:

Good Monday.  We will break another record this afternoon with a high of 86.  We also broke records Friday and Saturday.  We will likely break another record tomorrow.  There is hope on the way, however.  Some showers and cooler weather will move in Thursday through the weekend.

To sum up the month of October.  It has been ridiculously dry.  We will end the month as the driest October on record, tying 1938 with .08".  We on track to have the driest YEAR on record.  This is the driest January-October period we have had since record keeping began.  The old record was 25.44" in 1902.  So far this year we have only logged 25.05". 

Today, again, will be a record breaker.  The record is 84, we will climb to 86.  We will start with mostly sunny skies, but have some clouds moving in this afternoon.

For the trick-or-treaters it will be warm with temps in the upper 70s and low 80s this evening.

Tuesday will start with a mild low of 58, then climb to another record-breaking high of 84, just squeaking by the old record of 83.

Wednesday will be a LITTLE cooler with a high of 80.  Keep in mind, the average high is 68. 

Thursday a front will bring some light scattered showers.  Right now it looks as though this will bring us only about .25" at most around the area Thursday afternoon.

Friday will be MUCH cooler with an afternoon high of 72 and plenty of sunshine.

The weekend will be a nice fall one.  Highs will stay at 72 both Saturday and Sunday.  Lows both mornings will be in the mid-40s.
