All-in-All, A Nice Day

A weak trough that brought clouds and light rain over the eastern half of the region yesterday has moved east of the coast. A weak area of high pressure is now moving in and will result in a very pleasant day over the region. Clouds will be on the increase during the nighttime hours but will clear out during the day tomorrow followed by bright mild weather for Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day. Temperatures today and tomorrow will warm to the lower 70s in most places.

Thanksgiving Weather
It appears that we will enjoy beautiful weather on Thanksgiving Day with a sunny sky and highs in the mid 60s. During the evening, the sky will remain clear with temperatures falling into the 50s with overnight lows in the mid to upper 40s. For Black Friday, clouds will increase with pre sunrise temps in the 40s and highs rising into the mid 60s.

Very High Tides Friday and Saturday
With the upcoming full moon (Thursday night) and an approaching vigorous low in the Gulf of Mexico, the morning high tides Friday morning could exceed the flooding level of 9.3'. You might want to keep an eye on the tides then. Without any winds, the tide value for Friday morning will be 8.5' at 7:38 am but a strong fetch of easterly winds will most likely drive that value at least a foot higher. My Tide Calculator

Backyard Astronomical Picture:
The Orion Nebula
The Great Orion Nebula (Messier 42) along with the Running Man Nebula (to the left). I took this picture late Saturday night (actually, early Sunday morning) in my backyard with the Orion ED80T CF Triplet Apochromatic Refractor Telescope which supports a wide field of view (f/6). This emmision and reflection nebula is about 1,340 light-years from earth and is an area of new star birth. This picture is from the combination of 30 sub-frames at 30sec each. I did use a city light pollution filter (Baader UHC-S) to cut down on the stray light. (Click on the picture for a larger view).
