FOLIAGE OF A DIFFERENT COLOR

leaf_ir

OK, this season’s leaves aren’t as pale as this one, found yesterday on  newly painted pavement lines at Seven Bridge and Point Roads in Little Silver.

But if it seems the crop of fallen leaves isn’t as overall  crimson and radiant gold as in years past, all that rain we had this summer may be the culprit. According to the United States National Arboretum, heavy rain may cause the leaves to be lost before they develop their full color potential.

And speaking of rain, how would you like a weekend without any? That’s what appears to be on tap — a seemingly rare run of sunshiney days.

Here’s the local forecast from the National Weather Service:

Today: Sunny, with a high near 51. Northwest wind between 14 and 18 mph.

Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 34. Northwest wind between 7 and 10 mph.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 53. West wind between 5 and 9 mph.

Saturday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 41. Southwest wind between 6 and 8 mph.

Sunday: Sunny, with a high near 61. West wind between 6 and 10 mph.

Sunday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 46.

Monday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 64.

Monday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 49.

Tuesday: Partly sunny, with a high near 62.

Tuesday Night: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 46. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

Veterans Day: Mostly sunny, with a high near 56.

Wednesday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 41.

Thursday: Sunny, with a high near 55.

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
