A Break From Heavy Humidity

One of the great things about living in our region is the variety of weather we get throughout the year, especially in the summer.  Not everybody in the United States is lucky enough to get occasional cool spells in the summer or at least a respite from scorching heat and heavy humidity.  Our current dose […]

March Full Moon

This month’s full moon officially occurred this morning at 4:28 local time and boy was it especially bright thanks to completely clear skies in the region and our thick layer of snow cover.  I guess that’s one good thing about having this snow still around in the last week of March. As we know, native Americans and […]

After a fairly gray and blustery, fall-like Thursday, high pressure managed to calm the winds and scour out our clouds overnight, allowing temperatures to drop like a rock in most of the area.  Many spots were 10 to 15 degrees cooler than normal and some of us flirted with record low temperatures early this morning.

The potent cold front that pushed through the region Thursday night, brought some showers and thunderstorms to the area and is ushering in some much cooler, more fall-like weather for the end of our work week.  After a breezy, warm, and slightly humid Wednesday, we’re feeling like late September today behind that front with a […]

As strong Canadian high pressure settles into the region from the north, scouring out our clouds and drawing in some drier air, we’re looking at a perfect situation for a colder night in our area.  In fact, a Freeze Watch has been issued for the majority of our viewing area meaning lows will be around […]

Cooler Today, Full Moon Tonight

Thanks to the passage of a cold front through our region early this morning, we’re getting a break from typical late August heat and humidity and we’ll even get a taste of some fall weather for a day or two.  Perhaps this invasion of cooler air is occurring to commemorate the 1600th anniversary of the first sacking […]

A Frosty Morning

October 28, 2008 0 Comments

Things are warming up nicely this afternoon thanks to abundant late October sunshine and some slightly milder air that is beginning to trickle into the region from the west.  Winds are not as blustery as the past couple of days today thanks to an approaching area of high pressure from the west.  Earlier this morning, we had nearly calm […]
