No snow in forecast

Now that the leaves have turned their vibrant yellows, reds and orange for us to enjoy, everyone is waiting in anticipation for the next major weather event.

There have even been whispers of possible snow flurries this weekend, but according to the National Weather Service, snow is not in the forecast.

With the government shutdown, meteorologists at the National Weather Service are still answering the phone, but are “unable to comment further on weather conditions due to the furlough,” and are referring folks to their website for information.

Tonight, the low should reach the high 40s.

Better break out a sweater for long sleeves for the rest of the week. Tomorrow, Saturday, Sunday and Monday should have highs in the 50s to low 60s, with temperatures dropping into the 30s each night. There is a chance of rain today and tomorrow.
