Greetings and welcome!
It is a chilly one outside tonight. Right now Athelstane Weather is showing 31.8ºF and I would be surprised if it didn’t drop a little more by morning. It is about the normal time of year for the first hard frost or freeze.
We had been enjoying really pleasant weather in the 70s for the past week or so. That ended with a cold front and some rain, and now we are looking at pleasant more seasonal weather in the 60s for the next week or so. There is no obvious chance of rain for at least a week.
The fall colors are quite apparent now, and this should be a good weekend for viewing them. Chris commented on how fast that they changed late last week and into last weekend. The maples and paper birch are starting to show some color, and everywhere you look there is something changing.
We are not at peak yet, but it is coming. I saw a picture on the front page of the Iron Mountain Daily News that showed a spectacular maple forest in its full glory. That should be here soon.
That is news for tonight. Have a good week and thank you for visiting!
