The weather, currently.

Sunny and mid 60s for the afternoon. Cold evenings! 

We have now hit that point in fall weather where it's relatively warm in the afternoon but cold in the mornings and late evenings. To start the week, we will have some dry air pushed into the area. What that normally means is during the day, we have sunny skies which helps let the sun in and it makes us a little bit warmer. There is a catch though. It also means there are no clouds at night to keep the warmer air in from the sun's radiation during the day and thus all the warm air escapes into the upper levels of the atmosphere and we have colder temperatures at night.

If you are a plant or a pet person, this is where I start telling you frequently that there is a possibility for frost and that you should bring any pets and plants indoors if you can.  Stay warm!

Here's a glimpse into your Monday:

1) The mornings are getting colder. Temperatures will be in the upper 30s by sunrise and 40°F by 9 a.m. There may be frost on some parts of the road, especially on bridges and overpasses. Remember to take that jacket with you!

2) Afternoons will be warmer and in the mid 60s.

3) It will get cold again overnight! Bring in the plants and pets!

Activity forecast:

For all activities: You will want to layer for Monday. Heading out will be chilly if you are wanting to get out in the morning. Afternoons will be warm though! Enjoy the outdoors and fall colors around the metro area!

"Activists said the cans of tomato soup were a symbol of the country’s working class — the demonstration highlighting the way society has systematically chosen to prioritize profit over people and the preservation of the environment.

But such an unorthodox demonstration poses an important question: is this effective?"
