It has been another windy day with some gusts close to 50 mph. The wind has diminished this evening and will remain light tonight and Wednesday.
The recent strong wind knocked a lot of leaves off of this tree. There are still a lot of good looking trees out there with the colors at peak for the next week or two.
Normal highs during the next 7 days are in the mid to upper 50s. Saturday is the only day with near normal temperatures but that is the day it is forecast to be breezy. So basically below normal temperatures for the next 7 days.
Now lets take a look at the outlook for the following 7 days (8-14 day outlook) from Oct. 30 to Nov. 5. Temperatures are likely to remain below normal. By this time the normal highs are in the low 50s. Not much precipitation is forecast for the next two weeks.
Here is a look at how much rain we have had so far this month..through the 22nd.
