Tuesday October 30 2018

After a chilly start, we get back into a warming trend that will take us to Halloween. This quiet stretch means just watching the temperatures and that includes an easy go for kids Trick or Treating. At least two days this week reach the 70s, only to be followed by another storm into the start of the weekend.

The outlook shows another warm up next week, then we should be back into the Fall and maybe winter preview by Veterans Day.

If you missed my last report, I showed the Solar Cycle. See more: When sun spots are low, we get more snow
