Good morning! Today is Armed Forces Day. Mostly sunny and 68 degrees in Delmar. Breezy, 16 mph breeze from the west-northwest. The dew point is 56. After that front came through last night, with a few claps of thunder, it is much cooler.

Today will be sunny, with a high near 77. Two degrees below normal. West wind 10 to 13 mph. The record high of 97 was set in 1938.

Good evening! Mostly cloudy and 81 degrees in Coeymans. There is a south breeze at 12 mph. The dew point is a somewhat sticky 60.

Fishing was okay on Lawson Lake but I didn’t catch anything. But the fresh air and cool breezes were nice. The clouds kind of are blocking the stars. Nice having my evenings back after work. Tomorrow I will bring a book down to the park to read. I could bring my laptop but I think reading a book teaches me more and makes me waste less time.

Tonight will have a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 11pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 63. Five degrees above normal. South wind 9 to 14 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms. The record low of 41 occurred back in 1970.

Tonight is June Strawberry Moon. Unless you wear rose colored glasses it won’t appear red but this is the time of year to enjoy fresh strawberries at farmers markets. July’s Buck Moon is on Tuesday, July 19th. By then, bucks should have plenty of velvet.

Tomorrow the sun will rise at 5:18 am with the first light at 4:43 am, which is 15 seconds later then today.

Tomorrow will be mostly sunny, with a high near 77. Two degrees below normal. Especially with the wind, it will feel significantly cooler than today. West wind 10 to 13 mph. Wednesday is expected to reach only 74 degrees with continued sunny skies.

Looking ahead, Independence Day is in 2 weeks, First Day of August is in 6 weeks, Labor Day is in 11 weeks, Columbus Day is in 16 weeks and Halloween is in 19 weeks. Time sure goes by quickly.

After Sunday dinner at the folks house, down fishing at Lawson Lake. The sun has set but dusk won’t occur until 8:10 pm. Currently 66 degrees under mostly clear skies with some high clouds to the west. Not bad for mid April. A mild night on tap with a low around 44 degrees by daybreak. Maybe put a sweater on later? The mosquitoes have figured out it is springtime at Lawson Lake. The spring peepers are singing their song and we got some honkers at the other end of the lake.
