5:30 PM UPDATE - SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15TH, 2018
SATURDAY EVENING: Showers diminishing by late evening. Low: 40.
SUNDAY: Overcast morning. Some afternoon sunshine. Look ESE and up for comet 46P/Wirtanen! High: 50
The final weekend of Fall is half and half. The rain will be gone tomorrow, but the clouds will be persistent in the morning, giving way to some sun in the afternoon. Grab it while you can! The high will be up around 50 Sunday.
If you're looking to stay up late Sunday night, one of the 10 closest comets in the last 70 years or so will pay Earth a visit Sunday evening. With clearing skies late Sunday into early Monday, we should have a decent opportunity to view the green glow of comet 46P/Wirtanen. To spot it, look east-southeast and find Orion and the Moon. The comet will not have a well pronounced tail, but will have a noticeable green glow. Look above Orion and well left of the moon and you should be able to spot it with enough clear sky.
Behind the waterlogged weekend, skies will clear for the first half of the work week. Along with the clearing skies will come cooler temps with highs in the low to mid 40s and overnight lows back in the upper 20s, average for this time of year.
