... Cooler Saturday, but Still Mild...

Cloudy & Mild
Temperatures sored into the middle 80s Friday topping off at Savannah at 86 breaking the record of 83, set just last year (Records go back to 1871). Since then, a cold front push south of the region and at midnight was located near the GA/FL border. The temperatues dropped 15-20 degrees with the passage of the front around btween 4-6 pm Friday. That front will beging to retreat and move back northward as a warm front later today. Highs today will be around 70 but by Sunday, will warm back into the lower 80s. This will be followed by a cold front late Sunday night. There will be some light rain associated with this front Sunday afternoon. With the passage of that front, the sky will clear and temperatures will return to typical late February values, i.e., highs in the mid to upper 60s and lows in the low to mid 40s, for at least a few days before warming back to the 70s.

This is a new product that I have been watching from Tropical Tidbits Climate Models. This is not a forecast but just an 'outlook'. Keep in mind, the 7 day period is the average of those days with some days above the values and other could be below the values. This is used to get a better idea as to what to expect (maybe).

Heavenly Backyard Astronomy

The Moon Saturday Night ... A Week Ago!
February 16, 2019 ... 11:30 pm ...
Due to the extensive cloud cover during the nights, I've haven't been able to capture any nighttimes views lately. This was from a week ago, Saturday night, the moon approaching full phase. That was a 'Super Moon' meaning it was at perigee (closest to the earth in its monthly cycle) while at full phase. It was the 2nd of 3 'Super Moons' for this year (Jan-Feb-Mar) with that one being the greatest.
