A 70 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms will be with us every day this week and through the weekend.

Most of these could produce heavy downpours and wind gusts over 40 miles per hour. The tropics are getting rather active but right now, nothing is moving toward our area. I think there’s a good chance we will be affected by something later on this season.

The days are getting shorter with sunset now at 7:37 p.m., and can you believe that the first day of autumn is less than two weeks away?

Did you hear what happened in Denver Colo.? It was absolutely amazing as it went from a high of 101 degrees on Saturday to the 30s with a winter storm on Tuesday! I just love this stuff, and I know you do too if you’re a weather geek like me.

For our amateur astronomers out there, we will have a new moon on Sept. 17. That means there will be no moon in the nighttime sky. This is the best time of the month to observe objects such as galaxies and star clusters with a telescope because there is no moonlight to interfere.
