West River Eagle Local Weather Outlook


More Rain on the Way

The roads were good and muddy last week as it got cold enough to seem like late fall. Rev. Kurt Huber reported .45 inches of rain last week. We really needed it. We also had a pretty substantial frost event last week. We are likely to have a heat advisory and frost this coming week. Plus, there is a good chance that a low-pressure trough out of the Gulf of Alaska will bring us more wet weather.

Why did the Great Wooly Mammoth cross the road? Because there were no chickens during the Ice Age! A special thank you to the 6th period C-EB Drawing & Painting class for this week’ s joke.
