As temperatures rose to about 70, we were treated to the warmest day in about three weeks. It could also be the warmest day for quite some time in the future. Hope you had a chance to enjoy! A weak cold front promises slightly cooler weather Thursday. It’s all relative, though.

Tomorrow (Thursday): Cooler air behind a weak cold front filters in, so it’s not quite as warm as Wednesday. Sun remains dominant, and highs range from the mid-50s to near 60. Winds start the day from the north, but they will switch back to the south with time.

Toasty!: Temperatures ended up about 15 to almost 20 degrees above normal today. They reached at least 70 in the city, which is 18 degrees above normal for the date. It’s also only a few degrees from the record set in 1905 of 73. Coming into today, we were about half a degree below normal for the month of November, but we should now end up a little above normal for the month. Typical, right? At least we’ve got cold weather on the way, for people who like that kind of stuff.
