Good evening! Partly cloudy and 59 degrees in Delmar, NY. There is a southwest breeze at 5 mph. Big Waning Gibbous out there to the east. The dew point is 50 degrees. The skies will clear tomorrow around noontime.

I walked about five miles around town today. I could have taken bus a few times but walking is healthier. I’ve gotten out of the habit of the evening walk so I’ve been trying to do more walking lately. 

Tonight will have a slight chance of showers before 11pm, then isolated showers after 5am. Mostly cloudy, with a low of 52 degrees at 6am. Four degrees below normal. Maximum dew point of 50 at 10pm. Southwest wind 5 to 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%. In 2016, we had mostly clear skies. It was humid. It got down to 65 degrees. The record low of 34 occurred back in 1978.

Tonight will have a Waning Gibbous Moon with 90% illuminatedThe moon will set tomorrow at 9:56 am. The Last Quarter Moon is on Tuesday night with a chance of showers. The Hunter Moon is in 4 weeks. The sun will rise at 6:27 am with the first light at 5:59 am, which is one minute and 4 seconds later than yesterday. Tonight will have 11 hours and 10 minutes of darkness, an increase of 2 minutes and 49 seconds over last night.

Tomorrow will have scattered showers, with thunderstorms also possible after 11am. Cloudy, with a high of 65 degrees at 6pm. Eight degrees below normal. Maximum dew point of 52 at 2pm.

A year ago, we had mostly sunny skies. It was humid. The high last year was 89 degrees. The record high of 94 was set in 2015.

The weekend forecast continues to look fairly decent. Saturday, a slight chance of showers. Partly sunny, with a high near 65. North wind 5 to 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%. Maximum dew point of 50 at 10am. Sunday, sunny, with a high near 69. Maximum dew point of 51 at 7pm. Typical average high for the weekend is 75 degrees.

My plan for the weekend is to hook up the new relay for the CB radio and dash camera and do some kayak fishing on Thompsons Lake I think. This weekend I am not planning on heading out of town. Been out of town too much lately and just want to relax a bit. 

In four weeks on October 5 the sun will be setting at 6:28 pm, which is 49 minutes and 30 seconds earlier then tonight. In 2016 on that day, we had heavy fog, fog, shallow fog, patches of fog, mist, mostly sunny skies and temperatures between 72 and 45 degrees. Typically, you have temperatures between 64 and 43 degrees. The record high of 91 degrees was set back in 1941.

Looking ahead, Average High is 70 is in 2 weeks, Hunter’s Moon is in 4 weeks, Election Day 2017 is in 2 months and Thanksgiving is in 11 weeks.
