Morning Brief: November 11
Get your bugles ready! Manhattan’s 5th Avenue will be the site of the annual “America’s Parade” to honor U.S. military veterans. Veterans Day is held on November 11th each year to mark the day that combat ended in World War 1.
The events are marked today in dozens of other countries under the name of Remembrance Day or Armistice Day.
The day starts out nice, but be careful by the evening. Sunny, high of 52, but rain and even snow possible late, low of 37. [Full forecast]
