Sun/Cloud Mix ... Warm
The sky will be partly cloudy today with afternoon temperatures rising to the mid to upper 80s. The night will be partly cloudy as well and pleasant. Temperatures will warm 90 tomorrow, then a cold front will pass through the region with cooler air as temps drop back into the 70s for the highs Firday -Sunday. See the CLOUDS/WIND FORECAST and the TEMPERATURE FORECAST for your area. Our next chance for rain will be Sunday, particularly later in the day and overnight, with possible thunderstorms.

With the Full SUPER Moon last night, the tides will be very high all this week. However, the good news is that the winds will be mostly offshore which should aleviate any tidal flooding. On the other hand, with offshore winds, the low tide cycles could be exceptionally low. You can check the TIDE PREDICTIONS and the CURRENT TIDAL VALUE at these links.

Heavenly Backyard Astronomy for Thursday night
Horsehead Nebula (Barnard 33)
This is only a 55 minute exposure. This area of the sky (Orion) is fading into the springtime twilight and I don't have much more time this year to capture this nebula.
The 'Horsehead' Nebula is about 1,500 light-years away and the horse's head is mainly a large dust cloud obscuring the stars and nebulous gasses. The red color originates from hydrogen gas predominantly behind the nebula, ionized by the nearby bright star. Much of the glow results when the electrons and ionized hydrogen recombine. Additional dark gas and dust lie in front of the bright part of the nebula and this is what causes the dark network that appears in the center of the glowing gas. All of this is part of Orion where nearby is the famous Orion Nebula.

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).
