Sun and Cloud Mix ... Mild
There will be a mix of sun and clouds today and tomorrow as temperatures will warm to into the 70s and possible lower 80s for Tuesday. The record high for Tuesday in Savannah is 82° set in 1972. A cold front will pass through the region Tuesday night with cooler weather following for the rest of the week. See the FORECAST TEMPERATURES for your area. Our next rain system will be Tuesday later in the day but more likely at night with even the possibility of a thunderstorm associated with the that cold front. Temperatures will cool back into the 60s & 50s for the highs thereafter with lows mostly in the 40s. It will be quite breezy, if not windy Tuesday through Friday. Another rain system, this one more vigorous, will move through Friday and early Saturday.

FLOODING TIDES ... Thursday & Friday
A strong area of high pressure will form well off the coast mid week resulting in a strong and long fetch of NE winds across the Atlantic Wednesday night through Friday. This, coupled with already expected high tides due to the full moon will elevaate the morning high tides to possible flooding levels, particularly around 6am to 9am on those mornings. Please be aware of this potential forthcoming flooding situation.

We just past our earliest sunsets with the setting time in Savannah being 5:19 pm. The sun will begin to set later beginning Monday. Meanwhile, the sunrise time will continue to rise later in the morning with the latest sunrise of 7:26 am to be from January 3 through the 15th. This is all due to the effect of the orbital velocity of the earth during the winter being at its fastest velocity which is offsetting with our standard clocks.

The 'Deer Lick' Group of Galaxies
Galaxies Galore ...
This is the group of galaxies known as the 'Deer Lick' group. The large galaxy is known as NGC 7331 which is about 40 Million Light-Years (LY) in distance and is similar in size to our own Milky Way galaxy. The other smaller looking galaxies around it are about 284 - 365 Million LY away. The even smaller and fainter ones are even farther away. If you click on the image, you will see blue arrows to indicate those distant galaxies, some of which could be over 500 million light-years away!!! (I took this image using the 11" Celestron Edge HD telescope on Friday night, December 6.

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).
