Today: Mostly sunny, a little warmer. Highs around 55.
 Sorry about our recent lateness with sending out the Gazette…

Tonight: Not as bad. Lows in the mid 30s.
 That last one can definitely be traced to the server going down…

Tomorrow: Even warmer still. Highs in the low 60s.
 But i dunno about this one…
