If you look closely you can see a double rainbow that was spotted in Monticello on Wednesday evening. Rainbows have always been a sign of hope and sure enough the latest long-range maps are showing something new today! Chilly air is pooling in Canada and it will be moving our way by later next week with not only some needed rain, but some real relief.
Today I have been busy eating some humble pie. I thought it would feel a little better out there. Well at least we had a smidge of relief and tonight will actually cool down a bit. We can also look forward to a meteor shower this weekend. We can expect up to 20 shooting stars per hour tonight, 40 shooting stars on Saturday night and the peak of 60 to 80 per hour on Saturday night. The meteor shower is not expected to fizzle out like our cold front did.
The icing on the cake is the Space Shuttle can be viewed on the northern horizon at 10:50 p.m. Saturday night. More details to come! Have a great weekend.
