Very similar to the Match Game rules played yesterday, give me the most popular answer to these two topics below for two points each. And how cool is it that every game in the poll above got at least two votes? It's interesting that one vote separated each game.
Topic #1: Something that people pump
Topic #2: On average, how much does one bag of groceries cost?
Today’s forecast grade: A-
Now: At 7am with clouds and isolated showers in far northern Wisconsin, temps are in the mid- to upper 40s central and upper 40s to lower 50s south.
Synopsis: An area of low pressure will be moving across the state over the next 24 hours, bringing an assortment of clouds with it. Ahead of the low, look for breezy conditions to kick in more mild air from the south, and most if not all of the precipitation is again expected to remain north of our area. The A- grade given to today's forecast is pretty much based on the mild temperatures, not the sky, as clouds will still rule most of the day.
Today: Mostly cloudy, breezy and quite mild for the beginning of November, high of 63 central, mid- to upper 60s south! Just like babies, sometimes you wish it could stay that way forever.
Tonight: Variably cloudy, still breezy, lows mid- 40s.
Tomorrow: Partly sunny and a little cooler behind the low pressure system, highs near 60.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy and colder with a chance of rain showers, perhaps mixed with a flurry after dark. Highs only near 50.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy and colder, maybe some short-lived drizzle, highs in the lower 50s.
Next Week's Outlook: A chance of rain showers Tuesday and Wednesday, otherwise dry with slightly above-average high temperatures around 55-60 to start off the week, then 50-55 from Wednesday on.
Today in Las Vegas, Nevada: Partly cloudy and breezy, highs mid- 70s.
Today in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina: Sunshine, highs mid- 70s.
Today in League City and Pearland, Texas: Sunshine, highs upper 70s.
Today in Georgetown, Kentucky: Sunshine, breezy and warmer, highs mid- 70s.
