Mostly Cloudy and Warm
It will be mostly cloudy today and warm. Highs will be mostly in the low to mid 80s with lows in the upper 60s to the lower 70s. In the tropics, hurricane "Zeta" (which is the 6th letter in the Greek alphabet) continues to strengthen and is approaching the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. This storm will eventually turn northward and aim for the eastern coast of Louisiana by Wednesday. Very little effects of this storm will be felt in eastern GA/SC other than some scattered showers around Wednesday and Thursday. Another storm could form late this week or next week in the southern Caribbean. The next name on the list is 'Eta'. More informaion is available from THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER


Beach Water Temperatures are in the mid 70s

The Planet Mars
... Mars at Opposition ...
I shot this from the Heavenly Backyard Garden Friday night (Oct 23) with Mars two weeks after opposition. Opposition is when the earth is directly between the sun and the planet in question and we are seeing the full sunlit view of theit. The planet Mars was 40.88 million miles from earth last night, 2 million miles further away when it was at opposition. Mars is that very bright ruddy red object high in the eastern sky around 9 pm and is at its greatest brilliancy. It won't be this close again until the year 2035. I took this image using the 11" Celestron EdgeHD telescope using the Explore Scientific 3x Barlow. I hope you enjoy the image and get a chance to look up high in the east during the next several evenings.

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).
