The weather, currently.
Sunshine and dry conditions return tomorrow. The rain that did fall this evening was welcomed, but it was quite scattered. The entire region needs a widespread soaking rain, but it is not in the forecast. Mainly sunny as you start your Thursday morning, with a wake-up temperature near 17°C. It will be very comfortable for those who may be heading out for some early morning exercise. Bright skies will continue for much of the day with just some scattered clouds developing—the high 26°F. The wind will be light overall, a NW breeze of 15-20km/h and the UV index will be 8 or very high.
Thursday Night: Mainly clear with a low of 15. Perfect conditions to see this year’s brightest Supermoon. It is commonly referred to as the Buck Moon, but other names include Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, and Salmon Moon.
