With afternoon temperatures near and above 60 degrees, it ended up being a great day for a stroll or even perhaps an outdoor lunch. I hope you got to spend some time outside, because a cold front has already passed and we’ll start to feel the cooler air moving in this evening and tonight. There are certainly no 60s in the forecast ahead.
