Good evening! Currently cloudy and 45 degrees with calm wind. Not a bad evening for the second Monday in March.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 36. Light west wind. A mild evening about 13 degrees above normal. The record low of -2 degrees was set back in 1989. Nowhere near the record tonight.

Tonight will have 12 hours and 23 minutes of darkness, a decrease of 2 minutes and 54 seconds over last night. Tomorrow the sun will rise at 6:16 am with the first light at 5:48 am, which is 1 minutes and 42 seconds earlier then today.

Tonight we will have a Waning Crescent Moon with 8% illuminated. It will rise at 5:19 am. Almost the new moon. The New Moon is on Wednesday.

Warm mild but cloudy weather continues tomorrow. Look for a high near 56. Light and variable wind becoming south around 5 mph in the afternoon. 15 degrees above normal. The record high of 68 degrees was set back in 2012.

The average high in four weeks on Tuesday April 5th is 53 degrees, and the record for that date is 79 degrees was set back in 1950.

It long day but a pretty good day. Things moving closer to the weekend and springtime. Currently watching the PBS Newshour. I went for my evening walk a bit earlier then normal.

Still been looking at the candidates but I’ve lately begin to start to like Hillary Clinton. I’m not crazy about all her political positions but she seems like a good basic liberal, not too exciting. I don’t think her power should be unchecked, and indeed I would hope Congress and the Supreme Court would aggressively push back on the president’s power.

I hope you had a good day. Sleep well!

The record high for Wednesday is 68, which was set back in 2000. We might break that record, as NOAA is predicting 70 degrees with partly sunny skies. The normal temperature for March 9th is 41 degrees.

Good morning! Monday’s come back around again. Currently cloudy and 36 degrees with a 13 mph south wind. The wind chill value is currently 27. Kind of a gray start to the week but not that cold.

Today will have a slight chance of rain and snow showers before 9am, then a slight chance of rain showers between 9am and 3pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 54. South wind 7 to 13 mph becoming west in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 20%. That’s about 13 degrees above normal. The record high of 62 degrees was set back in 1974. Only nine degrees short of the record today.

Tonight the sun will set at 5:53 pm with darkness around 6:21 pm, which is 1 minutes and 12 seconds later than yesterday. Today will have 11 hours and 35 minutes of daylight, an increase of 2 minutes and 53 seconds over yesterday. Every day we get closer to March 17 when darkness equals light.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 38. West wind 5 to 7 mph becoming calm in the evening. That’s about 15 degrees above normal. The record low of -2 degrees was set back in 1989. The record lows get less cold every day.

There are 3 months, 12 days until Fathers Day when the sun will be setting at 8:36 pm (Daylight Savings Time). The average high temperature for Fathers Day is 79 degrees, with a record high of 94 in 1995.

Today in 1965 was Bloody Sunday when a group of 600 civil rights marchers is brutally attacked by state and local police with police dogs in Selma, Alabama. After Bloody Sunday there would be a national discussion about the rights of protestors and police tactics.

I have a bit of a sore throat as often happens on weekends when I spend most of the weekend at home, probably from the mold combined with all the time I spent outdoors in the cold on Saturday. But I figure I should be able to leave the windows open full-time in a few more weeks as it gets progressively warmer in the next few weeks. I usually turn off the heat for good around March 15th as by then it’s warm enough to keep the pipes from freezing.

I still like where I live in Delmar, even if the building may be a bit run down. It’s so convenient being able to walk to local parks and catch the bus to work. I want to get out of New York eventually but it’s convenient in the mean time as I work downtown and cheap. Plus in the summer months, I really don’t spend that much time home at all — I’m either at work, down at the park, asleep, or at camp somewheres in the wilderness.
