Our nice start to this week continues. Lots of sun, minimal clouds and low humidity mixed with a light wind from the northwest to create a rather delightful one. Highs that are rising mainly into the mid-80s are a bit above average (now falling to near 80 many places), but not bad at all. In case you did not manage to enjoy today, this evening promises to bring more spectacular conditions.

Through Tonight: We will be mostly clear all night. Sunset temperatures in the mid-to-upper 70s fall to lows ranging from near 60 to the mid-60s.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): If you liked today, you'll enjoy tomorrow, as we'll see lots of sunshine again. It will be another warm one as well with highs again climbing into the mid-80s, maybe a few upper 80s.

Noctilucent Clouds: Assuming skies stay clear at the multiple observation points, keep watch tomorrow night after sunset for noctilucent clouds that should be visible. The Naval Research Laboratory and Department of Defense Space Test Program will conduct a Charged Aerosol Release Experiment using a NASA rocket. The rocket will release cloud-causing particles about 62 miles above the Earth. Scientists will study the resulting formation to try to gain insights into the evolution and properties of noctilucent clouds which are still not well understood.

I am going to Busch Gardens on Friday...It look like cloudy and a chance of rain..Any chance this is a complete wash out?

With the generally unsettled pattern that we expect to take hold later in the week, that is certainly a possibility, but of course at this point can't say anything definitive either way. Check in with us a little later in the week.

Did anyone manage to witness or take photographs of the DOD experiment?
