1- A cold front will affect the area Saturday afternoon bringing much COLDER air into the area. Sunday mornings low may be near freezing. Keep a jacket in the car and remember to bundle up the kids. They get cold too.

2- The DROUGHT MONITOR graph is attached and as you can see, even with the rain we’ve had, didn’t affect it very much. We still need more rain so hopefully we’ll see some more in the up and coming weeks. The county is still split between a severe and extreme drought conditions. Be careful!!
