Thursday Night: Partial lunar eclipse overnight; Another cold front Sunday night/Monday morning

Weather

Tonight: Partly cloudy and chilly overnight. Morning temperatures will be in the low and mid 40s. 

Friday Morning:Partial Lunar Eclipse will be visible overnight/Friday morning. The partial eclipse begins at 1:18 AM, the greatest eclipse at 97% (peak – mostly red moon) will be at 3:02 AM, and the partial eclipse ends at 4:47 AM. Look toward the western horizon! Viewing will last around 3 and a half hours, which means this will be the longest partial lunar eclipse of the century! Unfortunately, there is a chance that clouds may obstruct viewing. Fingers crossed that skies clear enough for us to enjoy!

Friday: Friday will be nice and cool with highs in the mid 60s. Overnight temperatures in the lower 40s.  

Weekend: We will begin to warm up over the weekend. Highs will be in the lower 70s on Saturday and mid 70s on Sunday. A few showers will be possible late on Sunday ahead of another cold front.   

Next Week: The cold front will clear the area on Monday, but a few showers will be possible early in the day. The front will knock our temperatures into the low and mid 60s on Monday and lower 60s on Tuesday. Mornings will be back down in the 30s and 40s, as well. Model guidance for Thanksgiving shows some rain around late Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but it’s still too early to tell. We will be watching the potential closely!
