(Sept. 23, 2014) - Morning lows are no doubt refreshing and cool this morning as we hold in the middle 40s for most of the area.  Expect another bright, gorgeous sunrise at 7:34 a.m.  Be sure to have that jacket in hand!

Expect temperatures to climb near 70 degrees.

The combination of a strong surface high and upper-air ridge building in overhead will keep this streak of beautiful weather going well into the weekend...rain-free!

Temperatures will increase steadily as the week goes on, setting up what should be a beautiful weekend.
