Good morning! Happy Friday.¬†Yeap, it’s the 13th, but that doesn’t make much of a difference to me.¬†Mostly sunny and 53 degrees in Delmar, NY. Calm wind. Typical October morning with lots of sun. I am the only person on the bus heading downtown, as it seems like a lot of people took off this week. Next week I have off, so it’s hard to complain.

Today will be mostly sunny, with a high of 63 degrees at 3pm. Two degrees above normal. Maximum dew point of 48 at 5pm. Calm wind becoming south 5 to 9 mph in the morning. A year ago, we had mostly cloudy skies. The high last year was 65 degrees. The record high of 81 was set in 1930. There was a dusting of snow in 1934.

The sun will set at 6:15 pm with dusk around 6:43 pm, which is one minute and 38 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for partly cloudy conditions and 61 degrees. The dew point will be 48 degrees. There will be a south breeze at 9 mph. Today will have 11 hours and 7 minutes of daytime, a decrease of 2 minutes and 48 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will have a slight chance of showers between 1am and 2am, then a slight chance of showers or drizzle after 2am. Mostly cloudy, with a low of 52 degrees at 5am. 12 degrees above normal. Maximum dew point of 52 at 4am. South wind 6 to 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%. In 2016, we had mostly clear skies. It got down to 34 degrees. The record low of 21 occurred back in 1958.

As we head into the nine o’clock hour the sun is peaking out a bit. Going to be a nice mid October day once the sun comes out a bit more with the mercury around 65 degrees later. Hard to complain once the sun comes out in force and dries up the rain. Not much rain is expected for a while except maybe a passing shower on Sunday.

The sun will set at 6:16 pm with dusk around 6:45 pm, which is one minute and 39 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for mostly clear conditions and 60 degrees. There will be a east breeze at 6 mph. Today will have 11 hours and 10 minutes of daytime, a decrease of 2 minutes and 49 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will be clear, with a low of 40 degrees at 8pm. Typical for tonight. Southeast wind 3 to 6 mph. In 2016, we had mostly clear skies with more clouds in the early hours of the next day. It got down to 44 degrees. The record low of 24 occurred back in 1981.

Looking ahead, there are 6 weeks until Thanksgiving when the sun will be setting at 4:26 pm with dusk at 4:57 pm (Standard Time). On that day in 2016, we had mostly cloudy skies and temperatures between 37 and 27 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 45 degrees. We hit a record high of 72 back in 1931. Back before my time but with the jet stream in the current position its possible that we could break that record. A few years ago we had a pretty warm Thanksgiving.

I’ve decided I’m going to try to get next week off from work. Then I will probably go down to West Virginia and Virginia. I want to see more of the Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Parkway. I might also spend some time in Pennsylvania and maybe even Western New York. I don’t know. It all depends on the weather and what I feel like doing. I almost would rather spend more time at one location then packing up and traveling every day, especially with the nights as long as they are now.

This Friday is the 6:15 PM sunset. Then a little over three weeks from then the time will change. Eight weeks until we reach the earliest sunset of the year, with the sunsets slowly but surely starting to get later after that point.
