We’re giving you a look at the full Morning Coffee Report today.


Sunday morning wake up to 42 degrees at 6 a.m. and rain. (Surprise, Surprise, NOT)

The National Weather Service is telling us the rain will diminish after 12 noon. But we don’t want to jinx it!

Here’s what they have to say: “Rain, mainly before 10am. High near 65. Breezy, with a southwest wind 7 to 12 mph increasing to 18 to 23 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 34 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.” (Mind you that 80% must be before noon)

Temperatures will rise to 55 by noon and 64 by 3 p.m. However it will be windy. (Good time to take a rake to those left over leaves and maybe blow them down the road? Just be sure your neighbors don’t catch you.) That was a joke, don’t actually do that. Please. I’m serious. Don’t do it.

Sunday Night look for clearing skies (fingers crossed) with temps falling fast. It will be 57 degrees by 6 p.m., dropping to 44 by midnight. West wind 14 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph.

Monday will be sunny, with a high near 51. Breezy, with a northwest wind 15 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. (Break out those kites and head to the beach, if you have the day off)


NOTE: I’m not sure if Bob’s found those actors so I’m leaving this here for now.
