Clouds to Exit ... Still Mild

The clouds of the morning will slowly thin during the afternoon then exit the coast by sunset ... perhaps setting up for a colorful one. The sky will be clear tonight and sunny tomorrow. Highs today will warm to around 70 then drop into the low to mid 40s tonight and warm into the mid 60s for tomorrow.

Thanksgiving Weather
It appears that we will enjoy beautiful weather on Thanksgiving Day with a sunny sky and highs in the mid 60s. During the evening, the sky will slowly increase with clouds with temperatures falling into the 50s with overnight lows in the mid to upper 40s. For Black Friday, clouds will continue to increase with pre sunrise temps in the 40s and highs rising into the mid 60s. Rain is possible near or after sunset Friday, particularly near the coast.

Very High Tides Friday and Saturday
With the upcoming full moon (Thursday night) and an approaching vigorous low in the Gulf of Mexico, the morning high tides Friday morning could exceed the flooding level of 9.3'. You might want to keep an eye on the tides then. Without any winds, the tide value for Friday morning will be 8.5' at 7:38 am but a strong fetch of easterly winds will most likely drive that value at least a foot higher. My Tide Calculator

Backyard Astronomical Picture:
The Waxing Gibbous Moon
I was able to experiment with my little telescope, the "Orion ED80T CF" refractor, last night and while out did manage to capture the moon before the clouds rolled in. The moon will be bright all this week reaching full phase Thursday night (actually early Friday morning at 12:43 am) With this upcoming full moon, the morning high tides will be elevated above 8 feet. I do plan to open the big scope tonight in preperation to a new astro-video I will be making showing the different focus ratios available on the scope, targetting the Orion nebula. Pictures and video forthcoming.
