Well, just to answer the question, no, it is not winter just yet, that starts on December 21st, and yes, you did drop down to 32 again last night. So, tonight there is a front off the coast with the associated low pressure area dropping southward that will bring more clouds and an increasing chance of rain late, we see easterly winds 5-10, the low near 37.
Tomorrow looks cloudy and rainy with breezy easterly winds, 8-12, with those chilly east winds, the high only makes it to near 49, but with the wind it will feel like the low 40s. As the low continues to the south tomorrow night, the rain eases then diminishes by the early morning hours. The breezy east winds continue, 10-15 gusting to 20, the lows near 35.
With high pressure moving in, the weekend looks fair and dry but continues on the cool side so we see mostly sunny skies, after some patchy morning frost, the winds slowly becoming northwesterly 4-8, highs near 51, then partly sunny Sunday, the high still near 51. With the partly cloudy and cold nights, look for more frost, the lows near 35.
The high continues to dominate the pattern for the first half on next week bringing mostly sunny to sunny skies, the highs near 52, still the partly cloudy to mostly clear nights with areas of frost, lows near 35.
The long range models are still showing rain by next weekend.
Tomorrow is Veterans Day – November 11, 2022
The United States Congress officially recognized the end of World War I when it passed a concurrent resolution on June 4, 1926, with these words:
Whereas the 11th of November 1918, marked the cessation of the most destructive, sanguinary, and far reaching war in human annals and the resumption by the people of the United States of peaceful relations with other nations, which we hope may never again be severed, and
Whereas it is fitting that the recurring anniversary of this date should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations; and
Whereas the legislatures of twenty-seven of our States have already declared November 11 to be a legal holiday: Therefore be it Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), that the President of the United States is requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on November 11 and inviting the people of the United States to observe the day in schools and churches, or other suitable places, with appropriate ceremonies of friendly relations with all other peoples.
Veterans Day is largely intended to thank LIVING veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served – not only those who died – have sacrificed and done their duty.
Happy Veteran’s Day to all my fellow Shipmates and all other members of the Military Service!
