Rain ended up being less of a factor today than it could have been. That helped keep temperatures that were mainly in the 50s from feeling too terrible. Some sunshine this afternoon even helped temperatures rise somewhat in spots. But it will be just a temporary rise, as a cold night is ahead. This weekend will be cool, but pretty classic fall on the whole. It’s a great time to get out and catch some foliage.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Coming off a chilly start, it should be an awesome fall day. Temperatures will be chillier than normal, but lots of sunshine and minimal winds still equals a good time. Highs will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Northerly winds will be about 5 mph.

Sunday: There could be some patchy frost again early, but we’ll have more sunshine and beautiful weather. With a wind shift to the south, we will start to see some moisture stream in, so clouds are possible. Temperatures should make it to the low and mid-60s for highs.
