REAL Autumn Weather
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Showers are on their way out this morning. As of this typing, skies are brightening from Boston west. But I'm not in a hurry to bring back absolute sun. Some clouds will linger this afternoon as our cold front slows down offshore.
Nonetheless, afternoon sports (and even some this morning) are "in a better place". You have tickets to the games/events? Well I have a forecast for you.
Sox forecast is about the same. Wind will blow from left to right field.
This afternoon at about 4:44pm summer will officially end. Yep, at exactly that point, the sun will be overhead at the equator, marking (roughly) equal times of daylight and darkness. (Technically speaking, we don't see EXACTLY 12 hours of day/night until the 25th.) This is also the time to calibrate the sunrise/sunset. At this point in the year, the sun rises DIRECTLY east and sets DIRECTLY west. At other times, sunrise is slightly north of east (summer) and south of east (winter), while sunset is north of west (summer) and south of west (winter).
Now you have something to talk about in the lunchroom tomorrow.
Behold the 7 day...
Count with me..
Six straight days of sun and dry weather. (There are actually at least seven since the nice weather will last into all of next weekend.) There's a slow warming trend, but we're storm and rain free for a long time.
So kick back, enjoy your sports and get a good night's rest.
Winter isn't far off.
