Good evening! Mostly clear and 59 degrees in North Syracuse. There is a south breeze at 8 mph. The dew point is 48 degrees. You rarely get weather this nice in mid-October in Central New York. I guess you could call this weather an October surpise.

It was a busy but good day. Amazing weather. And the weekend weather still looks good. I still do need to get a state inspection for my truck. 

I think I’m happy with my choice for president, even if some of my friends aren’t. I watched the debates and gave it a lot of thought. Jill Stein seems like the leader we need. I’m glad I didn’t vote for Trump with all the disgusting things he says and does but I do think Trump would be a better stewart of our lands, more willing to listen to scientists and those who actually work and recreate on the lands, and certainly do more to protect the second amendment. Liberals who mostly live in the cities don’t get conservation. I’m fine with whoever is elected president as its really only a temporary job. 

Tonight will be partly cloudy, with a low of 53 degrees at 6am. 12 degrees above normal. Maximum dew point of 49 at 6am. South wind around 9 mph. The record low of 24 occurred back in 1981. Waxing Gibbous Moon tonight with 79% illuminated. The moon will set around 6:09 am. The Full “Hunter” Moon is on Saturday evening with mostly clear skies expected but there is a chance of showers.

Tomorrow will have showers, mainly before 3pm. We will high of 60 degrees at 2pm. One degrees below normal. Maximum dew point of 53 at 11am. South wind 8 to 13 mph becoming west in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible. The record high of 81 was set in 1930.

Seasonable weather for the weekend but we have to watch out for showers on Sunday. Saturday, sunny, with a high near 62. Maximum dew point of 40 at 7pm. Sunday, a chance of showers. Partly sunny, with a high near 68. Chance of precipitation is 30%. Maximum dew point of 54 at 5pm. Typical average high for the weekend is 60 degrees.

In four weeks on November 9 the sun will be setting at 4:45 pm (Standard Time), which is 1 hour and 39 minutes earlier then tonight. The average high is 51 degrees, and the record for that date is 71 degrees was set back in 1975.

Good afternoon. It is 71 degrees and sunny outside this afternoon in North Syracuse. A nice afternoon with a light breeze.

At sunset, look for mostly clear conditions and 68 degrees. The dew point will be 49 degrees. There will be a south breeze at 8 mph.

The sun will set at 6:25 pm with dusk around 6:53 pm, which is 1 minutes and 40 seconds earlier than yesterday.

Waxing Gibbous Moon tonight with 79% illuminated. The moon will set around 6:09 am. The Full “Hunter” Moon is on Sunday at 4:23 am with mostly clear skies expected with chance of showers expected.

This year, I decided to vote for Jill Stein for President when I filled out my absentee ballot. It’s been mailed. I was really undecided about who I would vote for president, and while I kind of liked Donald Trump, I decided Jill Stein had a better platform and was closer to me on the issues. I think we need a new, progressive direction for our country, and I wasn’t interested in revisiting the 1990s. But I didn’t like any of the major candidates. I thought about leaving the ballot blank. But I figured it was irresponsible not to vote at all for President. So Jill Stein is my choice. I voted on the Working Families line for the rest of the candidates.

I’m just glad I don’t have to pay attention to the horse race or politics any more through Election Day …

Good morning! Happy Hump Day. Not half bad day with partly sunny continues and 48 degrees in North Syracuse. There is a southeast breeze at 5 mph.

Got up early and walked for about an hour at Green Lakes State Park. I was up in the fields and hiking around enjoying the colors. At least there were some good blue skies today, although the colors still have a way to go when you down in the valley around Syracuse. I’m sure in a week or two the colors will be a lot better. I’m hoping to get down to Tully this weekend to do more hiking, and indeed the weekend looks pretty nice.

Also got my absentee ballot today. I still got think about some of the candidates, but I think I will probably vote in the next few days and just get it over. Then I don’t have to think about elections or politics anymore until next year. I just got to find a stamp somewhere. They really should pre-paid return envelopes for absentee ballots, as many of us can’t be bothered to go to the post office and buy a single stamp.

For the rest of today, it will be sunny, with a high of 70 degrees at 3pm. Nine degrees above normal. Seventy degrees in mid-October isn’t bad. As would be expected on a clear, autumn day like today, our maximum dew point of 48 will happen at 4pm. South wind 5 to 7 mph. The record high of 85 was set in 1954. The sun will set at 6:25 pm with dusk around 6:53 pm, which is 1 minutes and 40 seconds earlier than yesterday. Today will have 11 hours and 8 minutes of daylight, a decrease of 2 minutes and 51 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will be mostly clear, with a low of 54 degrees at 1am. After a cold Monday evening into Tuesday morning, tonight will be 11 degrees above normal. Maximum dew point of 49 at 7pm. South wind around 7 mph. The record low of 24 occurred back in 1981.

There are 7 weeks until First Day with Temperatures Recorded Below Zero when the sun will be setting at 4:30 pm with dusk at 5:02 pm (Standard Time). The average high temperature is 42 degrees, with a record high of 67 in 1933.
