Good evening! Clear and 64 degrees in Warren. Calm wind. The dew point is 59 degrees. 

It is a nice evening but it got late much too quickly. I wouldn’t complain about it and stay up later but I want to get an early start on the trip out to Presque Isle in case there are a lot of people at the park for the eclipse. I also want to get there early enough so I have several hours to enjoy the beaches and hike before leaving to head back to camp. I hate driving after dark and with the shorter days, I get to make sure I don’t stay too long. I will leave my campsite set up but locked down with security chains so I’m ready when I return in the evening. 

Tonight will have patchy fog after 2am. Otherwise, partly cloudy, with a low of 61 degrees at 4am. Typical for tonight. Maximum dew point of 59 at 11pm. Light south wind. In 2016, we had mostly clear skies with more clouds in the early hours of the next day. It was sticky. It got down to 66 degrees. The record low of 42 occurred back in 1977.
