Good morning! Suddenly, with playing of the Hollies’ Bus Stop Monday’s come back around again. Next Monday is Labor Day. Catching the local bus downtown. Mostly sunny and 54 degrees in Delmar. Calm wind. The dew point is 52 degrees. Feels a bit like an autumn morning, but gosh didn’t that weekend went too quickly. 

Right now, there is a lot of high clouds. Later, mostly sunny, with a high of 73 degrees at 3pm. Five degrees below normal. It seems like autumn comes too soon. Maximum dew point of 53 at 9am. Calm wind becoming southeast 5 to 7 mph in the afternoon. A year ago, we had mostly sunny skies. It was humid. The high last year was 88 degrees. The record high of 98 was set in 1948. 

The sun will set at 7:35 pm with dusk around 8:04 pm, which is one minute and 40 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for partly clear conditions and 67 degrees. The dew point will be 50 degrees. There will be a southeast breeze at 5 mph. Today will have 13 hours and 18 minutes of daytime, an increase of 2 minutes and 44 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will have patchy fog after 4am. Otherwise, partly cloudy, with a low of 51 degrees at 5am. Seven degrees below normal. Maximum dew point of 50 at 6pm. Southeast wind around 5 mph becoming calm after midnight. In 2016, we had mostly clear skies with more clouds in the early hours of the next day. It was humid. It got down to 63 degrees. The record low of 34 occurred back in 1982.

I have no idea where the weekend went so quickly. It was a cool weekend but it went by in a flash. Next weekend is Labor Day Weekend. I’m not sure what my plans are for the weekend but if it looks decent I may head up to Moose River Plains. I will decide later in the week based on the weather. 

This past weekend I was up Piseco-Powley Road. I didn’t bring my kayak and was too cold for swimming, so I went hiking. Saturday I hiked back to Spectacle Lake and Good Luck Cliffs. The later was more crowded than I would have liked. Sunday I hiked along the Edick Road Extension Trail from Piseco-Powley Road to Edick Road Campsite 1. It was a nice quiet weekend after the fast paced and crazy five days driving out to Erie, Penna for the eclipse. 

They finally are repaving NY 443 out to Clarksville whose rough condition had become the butt of jokes. It’s not perfect and being just a quick repavement it’s probably going to deteriorate quickly but it’s better than nothing. 

On this day in 1968, where the riots during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Wild times back then. Despite having a president who says a lot of controversial things and a debate about honoring our country’s history, we still live in a great time of peace and prosperity. It does suck for those people who are getting soaked from the hurricane. At least it’s Texas and with the rain the country boys will be able to have great bonfires with all of the storm debris. That’s great because a lot of Texas in recent months has been under burn bans. 

As previously noted, next Monday is Labor Day when the sun will be setting at 7:23 pm with dusk at 7:52 pm. On that day in 2016, we had mostly sunny skies and temperatures between 80 and 54 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 77 degrees. We hit a record high of 97 back in 1929.
