Showers and thunderstorms, if any, will be WIDELY scattered far and few between during the late afternoon. Most areas will remain dry.

The sky was reasonably clear Monday evening and I was able to test drive my newest telescope, the Maksutov-Newtonian. I am still setting it up and aligning it but here is a picture from it of the planet Venus. Venus is that very bright object in the western sky until around 11 pm. Venus shows phases like the moon and currently is waning gibbous in phase. Due to the enormous cloud cover, Venus is relatively a bland planet to view. However, what is interesting is the surface temperature of this planet ... due to an atmosphere compose of nearly 90% carbon dioxide, instead of an expected value of about 125F (compared to earth's 59F), Venus' surface average temp is around 850F. (Lesson to be leaned for our own planet)
