Good evening folks. It’s 37 degrees and partly cloudy with an east northeast breeze. Clouds are kind of making things shadowy this evening.

The sun will set in a few minutes around 5:45 pm with darkness around 6:14 pm, which is 1 minutes and 14 seconds later than yesterday. Not the prettiest of evenings with the clouds coming in but having light when one gets out of work is nice.

In four weeks on March 29 the sun will be setting at 7:18 pm (Daylight Savings Time), which is 1 hour and 32 minutes later then today. Plenty of time for going down to park after work with a good book if it’s warm enough.

Later this evening look for rain, mainly after 11pm. Low around 33. Light east wind becoming south 6 to 11 mph in the evening. Winds could gust as high as 21 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

Tonight is the Last Quarter Moon with 48% illuminated. It will rise at 12:18 am. The New Moon is on March 9th.

Wednesday will have a chance of rain and snow showers before 1pm,
then a slight chance of snow showers between 1pm and 2pm. Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 35. Breezy, with a west wind 18 to 24 mph, with gusts as high as 43 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

All and all it was a pretty good day. A lot of things got done. The weekend is getting closer as is spring time. It looks like we will have some fairly decent weather for the weekend. Saturday will be mostly sunny, with a high near 36. Sunday will be mostly sunny, with a high near 44. Not too bad for early March.

Map: Nimham Mountain Multiple Use Area

Nimham Mountain, named after Chief Daniel Nimham of the Wappingers tribe, contains 1,023 acres in the town of Kent, Putnam County. This property is very popular with bikers, hikers and horseback riders and has an extensive network of trails and old roads. Forest cover is mainly mixed hardwoods with some conifer plantations. Parking lots are on Nichols Street, Gipsy Trail Road, and Mt. Nimham Road.


Good morning on this Super Tuesday! Happy March! Currently 23 degrees and partly cloudy with a 12 mph west wind. That sun is nice but the breeze makes for a bit of a wind chill, around 11 degrees.

Even if your not feeling super about the leading candidates on this Super Tuesday 2016 edition, it is going to be a nice start to March. We are looking at 42 degrees and mostly sunny today. The wind will become slack as the day progresses.

Tonight the sun will set at 5:45 pm with darkness around 6:14 pm, which is 1 minutes and 14 seconds later than yesterday. Today will have 11 hours and 17 minutes of daylight, an increase of 2 minutes and 52 seconds over yesterday. Closer to more daylight than darkness.

Tonight it will cloud up and we will have rain mostly after 11 PM with a low just above freezing, maybe 33 degrees. Partly sunny conditions return for Hump Day.

Even since camping my hands have been all dried out and cracking. Been using hand lotion and it helps out but they keep getting cut on miscellaneous things which sucks. At least when the stove malfunctioned when camping I didn’t burn my hands despite setting one on fire with stove fuel. It wasn’t that cold up north this past weekend but the air was quite dry.
