THIS WEEKEND will be gorgeous ing great with the dry stretch in HIGH gear!  Highs will in the middle 60s on Saturday and upper 50s on Sunday.  The only caveat may be a weak front that could present a shower or two for the ‘snow belt’ cities and towns Saturday afternoon/evening. The Browns game will be a ‘winner’ with sunshine and seasonable high temps.

Then, Monday and Tuesday will include a  ‘bump up’  in the temperature department as we enjoy a short stint of upper 60s and possibly a few 70s around the area.

A strong cold front late-day Tuesday and Tuesday night will unlock the doors to a much colder air mass by Halloween.

A MAJOR cool down late next week and weekend may bring us our first chance of a few snowflakes.  Will it be a SPOOKY TRICK-OR-TREAT forecast?!  It’s still rather ‘far out’ of reach at this moment so please stay tuned!

We had a partial solar eclipse on Thursday, October 23rd. Here are some images by Jay Reynolds. A sunspot is visible in the imagery, a nice treat. According to Reynolds is the largest sunspot in 10 years.
