One More Hot Day

The summer-like temperatures will continue in the region today with highs around 90. The record high for today in Savannah is 91 set set in 1925. Normal high for this time of the year is 78 and normal low is 57. The heat index will add insult to injury as it heats to the mid to upper 90s today.
Record High Yesterday ... Yesterday, the high temperataure in Savannah reached 91 establishing a new record breaking the old record of 90 set in 1941. It also was the 110th day of 90 or above for the year.

Rain Chances Low to Moderate
With the warm and humid air mass over the region and a cold front advancing, there will be a slight chance for scattered showers today. After this front passes, decent autumnal weather will prevail for several days with a stronger surge of cooler air to arrive by early next week.

HOT SUMMER ... Continues into Autumn
As of October 16, there has been 110 days where the temperature in Savannah (airport) has reached 90 or above. The normal number of days per year is around 69. There is a good chance that today will add one more 90 degree day then that should be it for the year. The record for the number of 90 days in Savannah was set in 2011 with 121 days.

Backyard Astronomical Picture: "The Andromeda Galaxy"
The Andromeda Galaxy is our galactic neighbor being about 2.5 million light-years away along with the two smaller galaxies. All four galaxies rotate about each other. You can see this galaxy with the unaided eye in dark skies high in the NE by 9 pm in mid October and high overhead around midnight. This is a 68 minute exposure taken with the 11 inch Celestron EdgeHD telescope with the Starizona HyperSpace lens to produce a wide field of view (f/1.9). I took this image over the course of 2 and half hours but had to toss over an hour's worth of data due to light pollution glare. During that night, on a scale of 0 (total cloud cover) to 10 (Unbelievably clear), the sky was a 9.5, the clearest it's been since last winter. (Click on the picture for a larger view).
