Mix of sun and clouds this morning then a risk of thunder showers this afternoon/evening with moderate winds and a high of 21C. Currently we have some clouds, a temperature of 14C, our winds are from the E at 11 km/h and will remain relativity steady throughout the day.
We have no weather or marine wind warnings for our area at this time.
Our FIRE DANGER has now been ELEVATED TO MODERATE: Some wildfires may be expected. Expect moderate flame length and rate of spread. Control is usually not difficult and light to moderate mop-up can be expected. Although controlled burning can be done without creating a hazard, routine caution should be taken.
HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY!

Six Planets from Yosemite

The five naked-eye planets, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, have been seen since ancient times to wander the night skies of planet Earth. So it could be remarkable that on this night, standing at the side of a clear, calm lake, six planets can be seen with the unaided eye. Have a look.
Very bright and easy to spot for skygazers, yellowish Mars is left of a pale Milky Way. Saturn is immersed in the glow of the Milky Way’s diffuse starlight. Jupiter is very near the horizon on the right, shining beyond the trees against the glow of distant city lights. Last weekend, while admiring this night time view across beautiful, high-altitude Lake Tanaya in Yosemite National Park, a thoughtful and reflective
observer could probably see three planets more
