Weather Alerts

The warmer and drier conditions this week should slow down the progression of fall leaf color a bit, which got off to an early start due to recent cloudy, cool, and damp conditions in September. Normal highs should be in the upper 60s. But will average 5-15 degrees above normal into the end of the week. To get the colors to start popping we need warm, dry, and sunny days with crisp cool nights.
