Navigate on the map to your location and click for a detailed local forecast.
Today through Wednesday will be sunny and pleasant, with afternoon highs warming to the mid to high 80s by Wednesday. Nighttime lows will be rather cool, especially in higher elevation valleys due to light winds and rather dry air. Some moisture returns from Thursday onward, bringing a slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms.
Additional notes for the weather nuts:
Wednesday September 22 is the autumnal equinox. On that day, the noontime sun is overhead at the equator on its journey toward the southern hemisphere. At all points on the globe except the poles, the day and night are of equal length (hence the term “equinox”) and the sun rises exactly due east and sets due west. Also, on that day, the day length is decreasing at the fastest rate (about 3 minutes per day). At the north pole, the sun dips below the horizon, remaining there until March 22, while at the south pole it appears for the first time. At the equinoxes, there is no place on the planet that does not experience direct sunlight at some time during the day.
As the northern hemisphere plunges into winter darkness, please enjoy “Autumn” by Vivaldi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7hGiZ579cs to lift your mood, and consider that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner!
Christmas is coming, we’re all getting fat,
Please put a donut in the old man’s* gap**,
If you haven’t got a donut then a ho-ho cake will do,
If you haven’t got a ho-ho cake, then … well … bully for you!
The one between his nose and his chin (and possibly between his ears)
Have a great week!
