Temperatures are going to be flirting with 80 degrees on many days this week but a strong cold front arrives around Friday and Saturday and brings a chance of rain followed by much cooler weather.

Our next full moon comes on Oct. 20 and it is called the Hunter’s Moon — it will appear for the day before and the day after.
