After a breezy day, winds are diminishing tonight. Today’s winds were from the south and warmed things to 51° this afternoon, that’s near average. It won’t be as cold tonight as this morning’s 20° low, with overnight lows dropping into the lower 30s.
A passing cold front will impact daytime highs Thursday and Friday with highs only reach the low to mid 40s.
It will be a one to punch, one cold front right after the other, but no rain expected just a few clouds. With that said, I can’t totally rule out a passing flurry along the Plateau.
Warmer weather is headed our way this weekend. Saturday will be beautiful with sunshine and highs just a little above average. Sunday the warm air sticks around but scattered showers enter the picture. A few showers will linger into early next week.
Tonight is the best night to look for the Geminid Meteor Shower. You’ll need to bundle up and get away from the city lights. There could be a cloud or two get in the way late tonight, but tomorrow night will also be good. On a night like tonight when the moon is in a crescent phase, the Geminids are known to produce 50-120 meteors per hour, that is about 1-2 meteors per minute. The best time to watch is an hour or two after midnight. Be patient and give yourself about an hour to see a “shooting star”.
