The calendar says autumn, but expect a little bit of summer out there this afternoon.

Forecasters with the National Weather were predicting highs in the mid to upper 70s in Medford today and on Thursday, not enough to reach a record (that would require a peak of 81) but plenty warm for late October.

Although the afternoon should be toasty, forecasters expeted frost for this morning in the area.
