Is the ground wet? Yes, indeed we had a bit of rain last night and early this morning, just enough to dampen the ground. Only a few one hundredths of an inch of rain fell, but it's enough to create slippery spots where the leaves are wet.
Those spotty showers exit early this morning, allowing for a mix of sunshine and clouds throughout the day. The breeze is active out of WNW, but not as strong as yesterday's. It'll gust 20-25mph at times.
Overall, it's great late October tailgating weather at Gillette as we "squish the fish!" (I know, mammal right? Work with me here, just a sayin'). Highs today reach the middle 50s for most.
Monday comes close to 60 before a cold front oozes through here at night. That sets up a chilly Tuesday and Wednesday. On Wednesday, a weak disturbance slides through early with a passing flurry or a shower to start the day, but temps rebound to 50 by the afternoon.
Halloween right now looks mild with highs in the lower 60s! Friday reaches the mid to upper 60s with a gusty southerly breeze and rain arriving in the afternoon.
Go Pats and Go Sox today! Here's to hoping the rule book needs no explanations in either game. My heart can't take anymore of it.
