Good evening! Mostly cloudy and 70 degrees in North Syracuse. Calm wind. The dew point is 66 degrees. The skies will clear tomorrow around noontime. Not a terrible day but it sure was muggy out for several hours today. Walking down by the lake this morning was pretty nice. There are some nice views of Syracuse there. I might start doing that as a hike a few times a week before work each day. Other then that, we had showers on and off and it was super humid and somewhat warm for late September. A fairly uneventful day, but I got a few things checked off my list for the day.

Map: Peaked Rock Trail – Batten Kill State Forest

The Battenkill State Forest and Goose Egg State Forest are back to back and take up 983 acres combined. There is a small, grassy parking area on RT 313, just east of Eagleville Rd. The Folding Rock trail goes through the Battenkill State Forest, crosses briefly into the Goose Egg State Forest and then back where it ends at the southern edge. Round trip is a little over 5 miles and there is an ascent of 1260 feet.

Good morning! Happy Sunday. Partly Cloudy and 69 degrees at the Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool. When the sun peaks out from the clouds, it gets quite warm. There is a southwest breeze at 6 mph. The dew point is 66 degrees. Not a terrible morning but a bit humid along the lake. 

Onondaga Lake is quite pretty, although at the northern tip, it’s quite urban with the Thruway roaring in the background. People talk about its legacy of pollution from salt mining and the production of soda for glass and other products, but Syracuse has a nice backdrop of hills behind it. In contrast, the lake and points north as you get into the Lake Ontario flatlands. Hiked about four miles round trip on the lake from the Liverpool Yacht Club to the northern tip of the lake. For being in a city, it is quite nice. 

Today will have a chance of showers, with thunderstorms also possible after 1pm. Mostly to partly cloudy, with a high of 81 degrees at 3pm. 10 degrees above normal. Maximum dew point of 67 at 10am. West wind around 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. Not a washout. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms. The record high of 91 was set in 1891. The sun will set at 7:07 pm with dusk around 7:35 pm, which is 1 minutes and 49 seconds earlier than yesterday. Today will have 12 hours and 18 minutes of daylight, a decrease of 2 minutes and 55 seconds over yesterday. Days are rapidly getting shorter.

Chance of precipitation is 50%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms. The record low of 32 occurred back in 1959.
