Autumn is here, and all the beautiful foliage along with it. And this weekend's cold front certainly confirmed that, even if it was a bit more like November weather than October. If you were caught off-guard by that crisp breeze yesterday, the five-day forecast has some good news, as temperatures get back to normal October levels later this week.
