Unfortunately, the weather isn’t working in our favor to see the super blood moon total eclipse tonight.
A ‘supermoon’ happens when the moon is closest in orbit around the earth, making the full moon appear 14% larger and 30% brighter. Many know the full moon in September as the Harvest Moon, but what’s so special this year is that a total lunar eclipse will take place at the same time! That just means that the sun, moon and earth line up directly – allowing the moon to fall under the earth’s shadow. This makes the moon look like a red, glowing ring in the sky.
The last time this happened was over 30 years ago in 1982 and it won’t happen again until 2033!
We start off the work week with widespread showers and a few storms. Rainy conditions last through mid-week, until a cold front passes through Wednesday/Thursday. We then are expected to see drier, sunnier conditions by the end of the week going into the weekend. Temperatures remain below average in the upper 70s and slowly climb to around average into the lower 80s by the end of the weekend.
