Saturday’s high temp ties record

Here’s an excerpt from the Asheville Citizen-Times article:

The city tied a 115-year-old record Saturday with a high temperature of 70 degrees for much of the afternoon. Meanwhile, forecasters were keeping an eye on an approaching weather system that could deluge the region with rain over the next several days. …

Jeffrey Taylor, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Greer, said the temperatures tied the original record from Jan. 12, 1898. …

Today should bring a similarly warm afternoon, with highs still in the upper 60s, but temperatures will drop off as early as Monday with a high of 61 degrees. Highs will settle in the upper 40s for the rest of the week.
