Three words - we lucked out! It's been a very hot summer so far in Central New York, with 5 days in the past week at or above 90 degrees. A strong cold front finally moved through early Friday morning and the stage is set for beautiful weather this entire Boilermaker weekend!
Saturday starts out cool, with overnight lows in the upper 40s! The sun is out in force throughout the day, bringing temperatures into the 60s for the kids run at MVCC. The weather stays dry and sunny throughout the weekend, with highs in the upper 70s on Saturday afternoon.
