Good evening! Rain and 49 degrees in Delmar, NY. There is a east-southeast breeze at 9 mph. The skies will clear tomorrow around noontime.

Catching the 5:55 pm bus home, so I should be able to catch the PBS Newshour when I get home. Looks like it’s going to poor this evening, so I probably won’t walk down to the library but I could still change my mind. I always like the walk. 

The sun will set at 7:25 pm with dusk around 7:53 pm, which is one minute and 8 seconds later than yesterday. At sunset, look for light rain and conditions and 49 degrees. There will be a east-southeast breeze at 8 mph.

Waxing Gibbous Moon tonight with 60% illuminated. The moon will set around 3:24 am. The Full “Pink” Moon is next Tuesday. The sun will rise at 6:30 am with the first light at 6:01 am, which is one minute and 43 seconds earlier than yesterday. Tonight will have 11 hours and 2 minutes of darkness, a decrease of 2 minutes and 51 seconds over last night.

Tonight will rain and possibly a thunderstorm before 10pm, then a chance of rain. Cloudy, with a low of 41 degrees at 4am. Eight degrees above normal. Southeast wind 5 to 7 mph becoming light and variable after midnight. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms. In 2016, it got down to 14 degrees under mostly clear skies. The record low of 14 occurred back in 2016.

This weekend is starting to look quite nice for early April. Saturday, partly sunny, with a high near 50. Sunday, sunny, with a high near 58. Typical average high for the weekend is 55 degrees.

In four weeks on May 2 the sun will be setting at 7:57 pm, which is 31 minutes and 51 seconds later then today. In 2016 on that day, we had rain and temperatures between 53 and 44 degrees. Typically, you have temperatures between 65 and 43 degrees. The record high of 88 degrees was set back in 2001.

Not a terrible day at work but I was fairly busy so time went by quickly. Tomorrow will be a long day but I will be glad once the whole budget ordeal is over and I can get home every day from work early enough to go down to the park. 

Looking ahead, Tax Day is in 2 weeks, Average High is 70 is in 6 weeks, Independence Day is in 2 months, Election Day 2018 is in 83 weeks and Election Day 2020 is in 187 weeks.
