We’ve got a lovely stretch of weather ahead of us courtesy of high pressure currently building in from Canada. Clouds will clear out today and temperatures will rise to above seasonal norms straight through the rest of the work week.

About Today’s Photo:
There’s a nice stand of Jerusalem artichoke in bloom just south of Huntington Center along the Main Road. The backdrop of fall colors on Shaker Mountain and low hanging clouds make for fine scene.
