The weather was chilly Friday night at Barnes Park in Claremont where Newport downed Stevens in football, 26-18. Winter coats were not out of style at this contest that ended around 9:30 p.m.

The Saturday morning forecast called for rain now and then throughout the morning and afternoon hours. While temperatures are sliding down, the weather for the remainder of the week looks about as good as you can expect with summer winding down.

The Old Farmer's Almanac predicted slightly cooler and drier than normal weather for September and October.
