Good evening! Light snow and 27 degrees in Delmar. There is a south-southeast breeze at 13 mph. The current wind chill is 16. We have about an inch of snow on the ground in Delmar with about two more inches on the way. Warming up to 41 tomorrow so it won’t last.
Tonight will continue to have some light snow before midnight, then snow after midnight. Low of 27 degrees at 10pm. Four degrees above normal. South wind 10 to 13 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible. Probably an inch on top of the existing inch by 2 AM, then may be one more by 5 AM. In the city I expect few impacts for commuters by day break. In 2015, it got down to 34 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. The record low of -12 occurred back in 1988.
Waxing Gibbous Moon tonight with 87% illuminated. When the snow lets up the moon light is peaking through an illuminating the snow covered landscape. The moon will set around 7:12 am. The Full “Cold” Moon is on Wednesday night with mostly cloudy skies expected and chance of snow.
Tomorrow will have a mix bag of rain, snow, and sleet, becoming all rain after 10am. High of 41 degrees at 2pm. Four degrees above normal. That should melt all the slop away. South wind 8 to 14 mph becoming west in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow and sleet accumulation of less than one inch possible. A year ago, we had mostly cloudy skies and a high of 57 degrees. The record high of 62 was set in 1979. 6.6 inches of snow fell back in 1970. Tomorrow won’t be like 1970. The sun will rise at 7:16 am with the first light at 6:44 am, which is 49 seconds later then yesterday.
Mostly fixed the video problems with watching videos on my laptop. Ended up getting two DVDs from the library, one about the geology of America. It was a NOVA special, and quite well done. Watched it for several hours this evening, while I was working on maps with the October 2016 local area unemployment statistics. Interesting stuff. Should have some good maps to post later.
Picked up the groceries I need for the week, took some sinus medication and drank a lot of water (to help avoid getting plugged sinuses), and I’m feeling better. Hopefully I caught it in time and the minor discomfort and aching I had this morning is done and won’t come back come tomorrow after sleeping in bed with my neck back. We’ll see.
Looking ahead, Christmas is in 2 weeks, New Years Day is in 3 weeks, My 34th Birthday is in 7 weeks, Daylight Savings Time is in 13 weeks, Palm Sunday is in 17 weeks, Easter is in 18 weeks, Mother’s Day is in 22 weeks and Father’s Day is in 27 weeks.
