MWC Daily: April Showers Call for Rain Boots and Slickers
It's another dreary, rainy morning. But, today is not a total 'wash out.'
Meteorologist Rob Carolan says the rain will hang around for most of the morning, but this afternoon, we'll see a few breaks of sunshine. The North Country however, will see partly to mostly cloudy skies all day and the rain should end by noontime. Check your 5-day forecast.
Are you running, walking or volunteering?
This Sunday, it's the 4th annual Chief Michael Maloney Unity Run Walk. Both Mark Ericson and myself will be there. We hope to see you as well! You can register online until this Friday.
