While skies are clear and a balmy 45-50 degrees down in Arizona and Southern California, our teams up in Washington and Oregon are in a race against the an advancing winter storm. The satellite image below taken at 04:15 UT sets the scene for tonight’s event.
For a more detailed site-by-site sky forecast, you can check out our Sky Conditions page. This page links into a service provided by Clear Sky Clock that gives a graphical representation of sky conditions based upon data from the National Weather Service. As you scroll down through the RECON sites, you can see sections of the network that are experiencing clouds and fog (represented by white) and other sites that are clear and cloud free (represented by blue).
Good luck to all of our telescope teams this evening!!!
