Are you ready for a second straight week of cold weather? Daily temperatures have been running about eight degrees below normal since last Monday. Cold, blustery weather will be around for a few more days thanks to a storm that's way out to sea and and approaching high pressure system. As the high moves eastward and gets closer to the Atlantic storm we will see a brisk north wind develop today and tomorrow. Highs today and tomorrow will be in the mid 30s with lows in the mid 20s, both under clear skies.
Clear skies will let us see tomorrow's astronomical triple whammy. As the lycanthropic among us know, there's a full moon tonight. In addition to the full moon, there will also be a lunar eclipse. The astronomical fun continues tomorrow evening when, at 6:38 EST, the winter solstice occurs.
Wednesday, the first full day of winter, will be a transition day weatherwise. The high pressure system will finally pass eastward. That will produce a few clouds and a slight warming. Look for a high in the upper 30s! Cooler weather returns for the weekend and, don't hold your breath just yet, maybe we'll have a bit of snow on Christmas Day.
