  1. Total opposites: Well, even though the National Weather Service was wrong for yesterday, we’ll give ‘em another shot today. The NWS is predicting sunny skies, but a complete turnaround in temperature for Tuesday. While Monday was in the 50s, today is only expected to reach the mid-20s.

The red 11-pointed maple leaf signifies the environment and nature found in Canada.
