1. Today will be sunny, with a high near 43. North wind will be between 3 and 8 mph. Tonight will be partly cloudy, with a low around 23.
2. The Norton High School Art Group will be displaying at The Artist's Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Artist's Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place wanted to reach out to the community by allowing local high school groups to display their talents within a professional art gallery at no cost to the school or the students. Approximately 50 pieces of Norton High School student art will be displayed alongside the works of six or more professional artists.

Free appetizers will be served from 7 to 9 p.m. For more information, to purchase tickets or donate directly to the team, visit www.leaguelineup.com/semasssliders.
