Turn Up the Heat

Posted By · October 25, 2009 at 10:08 am

Highs today will reach the low 60s with a mix of sun and clouds.  There may be a few sprinkles this morning in our Northwest counties, but expect mainly dry weather for all other spots.

Tonight, a few clouds stick so overnight lows will only drop to the low to mid 40s.

Monday, we warm up to the low to mid 60s with a mix of sun and clouds again.  Rain will linger to our West.  For now, it looks like that will hold off until Tuesday.  Starting Tuesday there’s a chance for rain each and every day.  The week will not be a washout, but we could see rain on the radar at parts of any day.

Colts ease back into action after bye week

Posted By · October 25, 2009 at 12:39 am

I’m headed for the Arch. Sunday, the undefeated (5-0) Colts will take on the winless (0-6) Rams in St. Louis. I would say the Colts have received a bonus bye week. But the line in the NFL is “any given Sunday”, meaning any team can beat any other team. That’s usually true in a league known for parity. But this year is the exception. There are several really good teams, and the Colts might be the best. There are several really bad teams in the NFL right now, and the Rams are the worst.

The Colts have won 14 regular season games in a row. That’s impressive. But the Rams current losing streak is more impressive. St. Louis has lost 16 games in a row. The Colts can set another franchise record with their 8th consecutive road win. Then comes three straight home games. The Colts are sitting pretty.

The only meaningless statistic that favors the Rams is that the Colts have never won at the Edwards Jones Dome. They’ve only played there once, in 2001, when the Greatest Show on Turf was lighting up the scoreboard and whipped the Colts, 42-17. The cities are only four hours apart. But remarkably, the Colts have only played in St. Louis three previous times (the other two were against the Cardinals at Busch Stadium).

Cold Start to the Weekend

Posted By · October 24, 2009 at 10:24 am

Highs today will struggle to reach 50 degrees with mostly cloudy skies.  There’s a slight chance for an isolated shower or sprinkle, but I think most spots should stay dry.  What will put more of a kink in your day is the wind.  We’ll feel breezes out of the West up to 20 mph.

Tonight, the clouds break and temps drop to the mid to upper 30s.

Sunday, more sunshine is on tap, with highs in the low 60s.  Don’t get used to the dry weather too much, more rain looks ready to move in Monday.

Rain, Rain Go Away!

Posted By · October 23, 2009 at 12:02 pm

The heaviest rain has pushed out of the metro this morning, and we’ll see a chance for scattered showers the rest of the afternoon.  It’s going to be cloudy and windy with highs only in the low to mid 60s.  Temperatures will start to drop in the afternoon, so much colder air is getting ready to settle in.

For Operation Football tonight, it’s going to be damp, drizzly, windy, and cool.  Temperatures will be in the low to mid 50s.

Saturday highs will only reach the upper 40s to around 50 degrees after an overnight low in the low to mid 40s.  Pockets of scattered showers are still expected as this system finally pushes out.

Sunday, we warm up into the mid to upper 50s with partly cloudy skies, but we’re already watching for our next round of rain Monday.

Stretch of Rainy Days

Posted By · October 22, 2009 at 12:13 pm

Get ready to carry the rain gear around for the next couple of days.  Highs today are expected to reach the mid 60s while rain showers and scattered thunderstorms develop as we head into the afternoon. 

The rain sticks around through Friday, and at times, it will be heavy.  Temperatures are going to tumble too!  We’ll only see highs in the low 60s Friday.

Saturday, rain showers come to an end in the morning, but then we’re left with temperatures only around 50 degrees.

Some spots could pick up one to two inches of rain starting today through Saturday.

Never too old to Boogie!

Posted By · October 21, 2009 at 7:30 pm

images-5On Monday, I visited Crestwood Village West, a senior living community that had a strong emphasis on staying fit! It was refreshing to see that there is a new way of looking at life after the age of 55. They had numerous types of activities that people could participate in to get active and fit. One resident, Hal was a bowler for many years but for the past few years was too weak to do so. He committed to the fitness program, is now bowling again and loving it! If you or someone you know is 55 or older and inactive, I challenge you to take that first step towards a healthy/active lifestyle. Results can be garnered at any age so start moving! Here is a link to information I put together for older adults looking to get fit: http://www.wthr.com/Global/story.asp?S=5195424

Go Getem!
