Indian Summer

This past week was a nice one. Comfortable temperatures, sunshine, and even a day of rain. However, a large High pressure to our east is currently ushering in very warm air which is sending our daily max temps 10+ degrees above average. Feels like an Indian Summer. (OSNW3 October Observations)

Color Report
I would guess the tree across the street has reached it's peak due to the many leaves that have dropped in the past two days. Keep up on the latest color changes state wide from Travel Wisconsin Fall Color Report.
