The annual Geminid meteor shower runs December 4-17, 2021, and peaks on the night of the 13th/14th. The shower is best viewed after 3 AM, once the moon has set. One could see 40-50 meteors per hour that appear to radiate from the Gemini constellation.

In forecast news, temperatures will be running above average this week with highs mainly in the 40s. The exception is on Thursday, where temperatures will peak near 60° in between a warm and cold front. A fairly quiet-weather week with some showers possible Wednesday and a few on Thursday.

A storm could bring snow to the area on Saturday with rain potentially mixing in as temperatures warm above freezing. It is too soon to talk specifics but it has our attention.
