54 degrees with increasing clouds now. It looks like today will be cloudy but rather mild once again with the mercury pushing 70 or maybe breaking it in the city. Already the once very sunny once it rose morning is turning to clouds. It’s back to work in a work that seems so less rugged and more hustled than the back country of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Albany seems so domesticated and busy compared to the land I’ve spent my past week in. Much more color too. 

The sun will set at 5:59 pm with dusk around 6:28 pm, which is one minute and 29 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for mostly cloudy conditions and 67 degrees. The dew point will be 59 degrees. There will be a south-southeast breeze at 10 mph. Today will have 10 hours and 40 minutes of daytime, a decrease of 2 minutes and 42 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will have a chance of showers, mainly after 11pm. Cloudy, with a low of 63 degrees at 9pm. 26 degrees above normal. Maximum dew point of 61 at 2am. South wind 10 to 14 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible. In 2016, we had mostly clear skies with more clouds in the early hours of the next day. It got down to 42 degrees. The record low of 16 occurred back in 1969.

Wednesday morning I have my dental cleaning appointment so I will be in the office late a bit that day. I still have to tell my supervisor but I don’t think it will be a big deal. It’s good to do more to maintain my teeth. 

Today in 1973, President Richard M. Nixon agrees to turn over subpoenaed audio tapes of his Oval Office conversations. Happy Watergate Day if you can say that. I guess us democrats were happy about that but the whole affair was a blot on our country, even though many of the things Nixon did look like child play compared to the TRUMP. 

There is one month until Thanksgiving when the sun will be setting at 4:26 pm with dusk at 4:57 pm (Standard Time). The average high temperature is 57 degrees, with a record high of 81 in 1947.
