Enjoy the last warm, sunny day before autumn reminds us what she's all about.

1 - It will feel like August rather than autumn today with sunny skies and a high of 77º. Fall will show its true colors by Sunday after some weekend showers. Forecast details are here.

2 - High school football is cranking up the intensity as the playoffs approach. Assumption defeated Marion last night and there is a full slate of games scheduled for tonight. We'll run through them and set the weekend sports table on That Sports Thing at about 7:35am.

3 - Ballet Quad Cities will perform Dracula in the amazing setting of the Scottish Rite Cathedral in Moline tonight and tomorrow. Details and more weekend events when we do That Entertainment Thing at around 8:35am.

4 - With the colder weather just around the corner, some folks struggling to make end meet are worried about how they'll keep the heat on. But, there is help available. Learn more in Natalie's blog here.

Have a great weekend.
