Good evening from Click2Houston.com. It's Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019.

Today was National Fluffernutter Day, which celebrates one of the oddest combinations in all of food -- marshmallow and peanut butter. The first-known recipe for the sandwich is traced back to 1913 and featured Snowflake Marshmallow Creme.

Now, let's wrap up your day with a check on the fall forecast.

Weather

Highs got to 84 Tuesday with very dry air in place. The evening will give us perfect patio dining with temperatures falling through the 70s. Overnight we drop to the low and mid 60s with a warm tomorrow to 88 and a slight rain chance with the sea breeze kicking back in off the Gulf. A Big Friday Front is still on track and looks to move through Houston in the late morning on Friday. Check Frank's full forecast for more.
