1. For the first time in about a week, the National Weather Service's forecast for Attleboro and Seekonk includes above-freezing temperatures. Today's predicted high is 38. The daytime forecast also calls for cloudy skies and a north wind moving at about 5 mph. At night, it is expected to be cloudy with a low near 35 and a southeast wind moving 6 mph to 8 mph. There is a 40 percent chance of rain, mostly after 10 p.m.
It will really heat up Wednesday, when the temperature is expected to reach the mid-50s. However, it is also expected to be cloudy and there is a 50 percent chance of rain.
2. We hate to disappoint the Attleboro City Council buffs, but there will not be a regular Tuesday meeting tonight. Because this is a rare month with five Tuesdays, the council has the week off. The city's legislative body will be back in session next week.
3. Attleboro's school district superintendent search committee will meet tonight. The public session will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Room 178E at Attleboro High School. Go here to see the agenda.
4. Seekonk is also on the road to hiring a school district superintendent. School Committee Chair Mitch Vieira told Patch the search committee has reduced the number of candidates from 39 to four. At least some of those candidates will appear at a public interview in March.
