March 19, 2017 Night

Good evening! I thought it was a good final day of winter, going on the Pine Bush Hike that we ended up doing at Thacher Park. Beautiful day for skiing for sure. Now, clear and 30 degrees in Delmar. There is a north breeze at 8 mph. I will post more pictures and videos from the trip tomorrow. I also have lots of new graphs, charts, maps for tomorrow. 

Tonight will be clear, with a low of 18 degrees at 6am. 10 degrees below normal. Maximum wind chill around 8 at 6am; Northwest wind around 8 mph. In 2016, it got down to 22 degrees under partly cloudy skies. The record low of 2 occurred back in 1967.

Waning Gibbous Moon tonight with 53% illuminated. The moon will rise around 11:51 pm. The Last Quarter Moon will be tomorrow with mostly cloudy then slight chance of snow showers skies expected. The Full “Pink” Moon is on Tuesday, April 11th. The sun will rise at 6:59 am with the first light at 6:30 am, which is one minute and 45 seconds earlier than yesterday. Tonight will have 11 hours and 49 minutes of darkness, a decrease of 2 minutes and 54 seconds over last night.

Tomorrow will have increasing clouds, with a high of 41 degrees at 4pm. Five degrees below normal. Northwest wind 7 to 9 mph. A year ago, we had partly cloudy skies and a high of 41 degrees. The record high of 78 was set in 2012. 7 inches of snow fell back in 1944.

Right now, a split verdict on the weekend with Sunday being best. Saturday, a chance of rain. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 54. Chance of precipitation is 30%. Sunday, a chance of snow. Partly sunny, with a high near 40. Chance of precipitation is 30%.Typical average high for the weekend is 48 degrees.

In four weeks on April 16 the sun will be setting at 7:40 pm, which is 32 minutes and 6 seconds later then tonight. In 2016 on that day, we had partly sunny skies and temperatures between 66 and 35 degrees. Typically, you have temperatures between 59 and 38 degrees. The record high of 91 degrees was set back in 2012.

Looking ahead, Palm Sunday is in 3 weeks, Easter is in 4 weeks, Average High is 60 is in 1 months, Mother’s Day is in 8 weeks and Father’s Day is in 13 weeks.
