Tuesday November 7

We got lucky yesterday as the rain never materialized and temps reached the lower 70s. Our luck has changed today and were can’t avoid this one. Temperatures will be more than 20 degrees colder this afternoon and the rain will be steady and heavy at times. Many will finish the day with temps in the 40s and wet.  Today is also the first day with sunset in the 4 O’clock hour. Behind this storm, colder air will filter in, which will be full noticed Friday and Saturday.  Our first hard freeze with lows in the 20s expected on Saturday morning 11/11. The long range outlook supports and early start to winter. Here’s the breakdown.
