BELLINGHAM - It still may feel like summer in the daytime, but clear skies have meant low temperatures that already have broken one record.
When the thermometer dipped to 33 degrees on Friday, Oct. 5, that beat the previous record set on that day in 1969 by one degree, according to the National Weather Service temperatures recorded at Bellingham International Airport.
This area's average first freeze is Oct. 23, but this year temperatures dropped to 32 degrees on Thursday, Oct. 4.
Nighttime temperatures this week will be well above that, in the mid-40s, with fog.
The clear skies likely will give way this Friday. A chance of rain is in the forecast through the weekend.
