Monday's an Umbrella Day...Again

It's not going to be the kind of rain that's going to require you fortify your home with sandbags, but expect to get wet, especially in the morning. Monday's going to feel a lot more like autumn than any day so far this season, with highs just in the mid-50's. Tuesday and Wednesday will also be cool --upper 50's and lower 60's-- and we might see the lower 70's on Thursday.

If you're tired of the rain, Yuma, Arizona, gets the least amount of rain of any American city: 2.65 inches a year.

On this day in history in 1957, the first satellite, Sputnik, was launched into orbit by the Soviet Union. Sputnik, stayed in orbit until January 4, 1958. By the time it reentered earth's atmosphere, Sputnik had traveled 37 million miles.
