While the weather is quiet I figured we can discuss a benchmark we've hit. We've seen our last 8 pm sunset and will continue to lose daylight for the next several months. Sunsets around the area are now happening around 7:50 to 7:57 pm.

Over the next two weeks we'll lose around two minutes and 40 seconds of daylight per day. In about a month from now will be the autumnal equinox.

The equinoxes are the only time when both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere experience roughly equal amounts of daytime and nighttime. This is also when we'll start to more rapidly lose daylight as we head through fall and into winter. Sunsets will be around 7 pm and sunrises will be before 7 am.

During this time the weather tends to get pretty funky but for now we have some calm conditions to start the week.

High pressure will be in control for the first few days of the week, leading to a lot of sunshine and fairly pleasant conditions. Temperatures will be near normal on Monday:

Dew points will be near 60, pretty nice conditions for late August:

Temperatures will warm up gradually over the next few days and rain chances increase by Thursday. There's still some uncertainty in how much rain we'll see but there's a chance:

Otherwise we have a fairly calm week up ahead!
