Good morning! We’re off to a cool start this Tuesday morning, our first full day of fall.  Temps are pretty similar to what we woke up to yesterday.  Most spots are in the 40s this morning.  The satellite/radar is clear and will remain that way today with plenty of sunshine.  Yesterday’s high was 66 degrees, today we’ll top out in the low 70s.

Tonight temps fall into the 40s and low 50s with mostly clear skies.

Tomorrow we’ll add a few degrees to the high, with temps in the mid 70s, and sunny skies.

We just crossed into fall, but our first frost/freeze could be right around the corner.  The average date for a low temp of 36 or lower is October 11th.  For 32 or lower it’s October 14th, and a hard freeze with a low of 28 or lower is November 2nd.

If you’re not ready for the cold just yet, don’t worry, the 7 day forecast is looking beautiful with highs approaching 80 for the weekend.
