Rains Chances On The Way Up
Sun & Clouds Mix ... Showers
Today we will see a mix of sun and clouds, probably more clouds than the sunshine along with scattered afternoon showers, some with thunder. Rain chances will continue to increase over the next 3 days. See FORECAST RAINFALL AMOUNTS for your area. Rain chances will then greatly increase Sunday through Wednesday.

Possible Early Tropical Storm???
Several of the world's dynamic computer models (GFS, FV3-GFS, CMC, and the ECMWF) are beginning to back off on the potential of an early tropical storm to form later this week into the weekend in the Caribbean and then move either in the Gulf of Mexico or off the SE US coast. They are still hinting on a low pressure system with rain to form that could affect the Memorial Day weekend in our region. Obviously, it is still too early to say too much more about this. I will keep you posted. You can view the Latest Computer Models at this link from "Tropical Tidbits" (You might want to watch the new FV3-GFS model on this. This is the model that will replace the current GFS model next year.)

The Planets Begin to Dominate the Night Sky
The Planets as seen from my backyard in Savannah, GA on May 10, 2018 between 3 - 5 am. I took these through the 11" Celestron Edge HD f/10 telescope using a 2X Barlow to enlarge the view. I used the Altair Hypercam 183C Camera and SharpCap 3.0 to capture the image files then RegiStax 6.0 to stack and process. Since then, clouds and rain have prevented any new viewing opportunities. Jupiter just passed opposition and is now moving further away but Saturn and Mars continue to get closer and brighter and will be very prominent in the sky during the summer months. Expect a lot more pictures of them then along with Venus
