A LOOK AHEAD. Despite today’s cool down, things are still looking hot for the back half of the week, and a blazer of a weekend is in the forecast. Book your floaties and innertubes now, and plan on morning and evening fishing trips as the warmth of mid-day will approach 100 degrees.
NOW WAY AHEAD. The trend of a warm August is setting up in the mid-term and with a strong El Nino brewing in the pacific, we may see a warmer than average autumn as well. Somebody cue up Chris Farley, as you may be deer hunting in a blaze-orange tee shirt come November!
IN THE MOMENT. Now take today and go fishing. There’s only so much of summer left. Enjoy the day!
