Good morning! Happy October! Two weeks to Average High is 60. Brilliant blue skies and 40 degrees in Delmar. Calm wind. It doesn’t look like we got frost here in Delmar but they certainly got it in the higher elevations in the mountains. One month from now will be November. Can you believe that? Now get out and enjoy the weather before it gets all cold out.

Chomping down on breakfast, feeling quite relaxed and ready for a nice day. While I got to meet my dad at 9:30 AM I might shortly try to get out for a walk. Later on, I’ll probably go up to Thacher Park for a while. Blueberries and waffles again this morning. Maybe I should take my shotgun for a walk at Partridge Run or maybe I’ll wait on that.

Today will have patchy fog before 9am. Otherwise, sunny, with a high of 65 degrees at 3pm. One degree below normal. Calm wind becoming northwest around 5 mph in the afternoon. A year ago, we had cloudy skies. The high last year was 61 degrees. The record high of 90 was set in 1927. There was a dusting of snow in 1946. It’s October, so NOAA keeps track of those things.

The sun will set at 6:35 pm with dusk around 7:03 pm, which is one minute and 44 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for clear conditions and 61 degrees. There will be a west-northwest breeze at 6 mph. Today will have 11 hours and 41 minutes of daytime, a decrease of 2 minutes and 50 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will have patchy fog after 2am. Otherwise, clear, with a low of 40 degrees at 6am. Five degrees below normal. West wind around 6 mph becoming calm in the evening. Another cool evening on tap. In 2016, we had cloudy skies. It got down to 54 degrees. The record low of 30 occurred back in 1972.

As previously noted, there are 2 weeks until Average High is 60 when the sun will be setting at 6:11 pm with dusk at 6:40 pm. On that day in 2016, we had heavy fog, freezing fog, shallow fog, patches of fog, mist, mostly cloudy skies and temperatures between 63 and 28 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 60 degrees. We hit a record high of 86 back in 1897.
