Cloudy ... Some Showers ... Stormy Overnight ... Cold on-the-way
Clouds continue to stream over the region. Periods of rain are likely during the day and evening. A strong cold front will enter the region overnight with a potential for thunderstorms, particularly between midnight and sunrise, some with the potential for damaging winds. Outside of the storms, the winds will increase during the night gusting over 20 mph. Highs will warm to the lower 70s today and Monday but will struggle to reach 50 for the high on Tuesday. They will drop into the low to mid 30s Monday & Tuesday night with some upper 20s west of I-95 Tuesday night. Needless to say, frost and freeze conditions will prevail and any tender vegetation will need to be protected, which will be worth the effort because an extended period of mild weather will follow after another brief chilly snap next weekend.

Autumn Nights Under the Stars
The Horsehead Nebula ...
One of my favorite deep space objects is the Horsehead Nebula. It was one of my first targets that I sought after when I started in my astrophotography quest in 2016. In this session, I used the ZWO ASI 160mm ProTEC monochrome camera with red-green-blue filters. The final results are from 3 different nights of imaging, dealing with passing clouds. This deep space object is part of the larger ORION complex and is high overhead now around 1 am. However, you need a telescope and time-laspe photography to see it, which I have for you here.
