Labor Day weekend warming up
One of the bigger events going on this evening is the chance to catch the second full moon of the month. Tonight, the Super Blue Moon will be visible, and weather conditions will cooperate accordingly for optimal viewing.
This moon gets its name because it is both a supermoon and a blue moon. It’s a supermoon because it is at its closest point in orbit to Earth. And it’s a blue moon, not for its color, but for it being the second full moon of the same month.
Temperatures for the rest of tonight and into Thursday will be cooling down, similar to what we saw last night. Patchy fog may be possible again as lows drop toward the mid 50s.
These temperatures are quite cool compared to our average lows for this time of year (around the mid 60s), but not near records.
We’ll be sitting pretty for comfortable weather through the rest of this work week. Humidity won’t really be noticeable until about Saturday, and as we start to warm back up, dew point temperatures will increase to the lower 70s.
Looking ahead, the last two days of August will be welcomed. Lower 80s to close out the month, then upper 80s and 90s to ring in the new month. We’re on our way to warmer weather for the upcoming holiday weekend.
After a couple more days with cooler conditions, we’ll be hanging about in the upper 80s and low 90s for a while. We also continue our pattern of sunny days coming up. The next chance comes with a wave from Tuesday into Wednesday.
