Forecast in detail

We are in for a long stretch of sunny and dry weather; maybe a week or more! But, in the short-term, there is a price to pay as chilly north winds out of Canada are responsible for deflecting storms to our south. At least we are at the time of year when below normal means highs in the 40s.

Tonight: Clear skies and brisk northwest winds are on the agenda. Lows are mainly mid- to upper 20s but will feel more like teens. For insomniacs or predawn risers, the moon and the red supergiant star Antares pair up for a sight to see in the southern sky. Confidence: High
