16 going once...going twice...heat wave coming

Actually, "no, thank you." The Ada McDonald's thermometer read 16 degrees on Wednesday. (The service station on North Main and 81 read 17 - but it didn't seem any warmer there.)

But, there's good news in the forecast. Depending upon which weather forecast you like, just like the stock market, the thermometer is on the rise.

We understand Friday's high will be 19, then we hit a hot streak: 25 predicted high on Saturday, 25 on Sunday, 28 on Monday - can you believe this - 37 on Tuesday, 46 on Wednesday.

Next thing you know we'll worry about the trees budding too early.
