PM Update: Friday temps inch upward
Looking out the window this afternoon could easily mislead those seeking insight into the weather. Skies were just as sunny as yesterday, but temperatures around 25 degrees colder. After a chilly night, temps swing back up tomorrow - roughly midway between today's upper 30s and Wednesday's low 60s.
Through Tonight: Mostly clear skies early give way to increasing mid- and high level clouds late tonight as winds from the southeast breathe in some milder air. Nonetheless, temperatures still fall back to near 30 downtown and into the mid-20s in the colder suburbs.
Tomorrow (Friday): We'll have a mix of sun and clouds (I'm leaning toward more clouds) and though it's milder than today, it's not exactly balmy. Highs range from 45-50. Winds from the east and southeast at 10 mph, gusting to 20 mph, offer a characteristic March chill.
Red hot image of the sun: Greek photographers keep delivering the celestial goods. Yesterday we featured an image first published on NASA's website of the crescent moon over the Poseidon temple in Sounion, Greece. Today, the same NASA site has a beautiful image of a sunset in Alexandroupoli, Greece, showcasing refraction and mirage optical phenomena. It's not the weather image of the day though. You'll have to check back later for that...
