Local Weather (Subject to Change!)!
We’re looking at a cloudy morning here at the harbor, with temperatures staying cool in the high 60s. The day will warm up to a high of 76 degrees by mid-afternoon, so it’ll be time to hit the lake or pool! We’re expecting the clouds to clear by early evening, perfect for dinner on the North Dock and a beautiful weekend sunset.
We’d like to send out some very special birthday wishes today: Happy 85th Birthday to Jan Post from all of us at Basin Harbor and the Post Family!
