Good evening! Mostly sunny and 24 degrees in City of Albany. Breezy, 23 mph breeze from the northwest with gusts up to 40 mph. The current wind chill is 9. Absurdly cold for late March, but then again, it is still March, and sometimes it gets cold. At least it’s sunny, and we have more time now in the evenings. I don’t think I will be going to the park this evening. Eventually it will get nice enough to head to the park after work, I”m sure.

Tonight will be clear, with a low of 14 degrees at 4am. 18 degrees below normal. Maximum wind chill around 8 at 6pm; Northwest wind 6 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 26 mph. In 2016, it got down to 34 degrees with periods of rain. The record low of -4 occurred back in 1875.

Waning Crescent Moon tonight with 33% illuminated. The moon will rise around 2:05 am. The New Moon is on Tuesday night with chance of rain then chance of rain/snow expected. The Full “Pink” Moon is on Tuesday, April 11th. The sun will rise at 6:52 am with the first light at 6:24 am, which is one minute and 45 seconds earlier than yesterday. Tonight will have 11 hours and 40 minutes of darkness, a decrease of 2 minutes and 54 seconds over last night.

Tomorrow will be somewhat warmer, with a high near 34.  Generally, sunny. Northwest wind 7 to 10 mph. The record high is 80, set back in 1938. The climate normal for Thursday is 47 degrees.

The weekend forecast keeps going downhill, but at least Saturday won’t be that frigid. Saturday, rain likely. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 52. Chance of precipitation is 60%. Sunday, snow likely before 11am, then rain likely. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 43. Chance of precipitation is 60%. Typical average high for the weekend is 48 degrees. I guess I better not plan on doing much this weekend. At least it will be warm, so I won’t be spending much on heat.

In four weeks on April 19 the sun will be setting at 7:42 pm, which is 31 minutes and 59 seconds later then today. In 2016 on that day, we had rain and temperatures between 65 and 44 degrees.
