Summer ends tonight on a high, dry note
Summer is going out just as it came in -- warm, sunny and dry.
When fall begins at 6:23 p.m. today, we will have racked up 28 consecutive summer days with temperatures above normal.
"We're ending summer on an 80-degree note," said meteorologist Steve McLaughlin of the National Weather Bureau. "It was the warmest summer in Buffalo's history."
Fall will come in on a bit of a cold front tonight, along with some overnight showers.
After a brief return to the 70s over the weekend, the first real cool spell of the season will arrive Monday and Tuesday, with the lows in the 40s and the highs in the 60s.
Board hears case against teacher
Cleveland Hill School Superintendent Bruce Inglis began rare disciplinary action Wednesday night against an unnamed, tenured teacher.
The School Board received a detailed statement of charges against the teacher, but because of confidentiality requirements, no information was available about the identity of the teacher or the reason for the action.
"We can't tell you anything about the teacher," Inglis said.
"It is unusual to bring such an action," he added. "And it's serious enough that I've asked the board to discuss it."
The board met in executive session to discuss the case.
