Good morning bloggers,
A big warm up is in progress right now as temperatures jump into the 50s. The warmest temperature so far in December has only been 52 degrees. We should exceed that number today. Last December it had already reached 72 degrees in December, and last winter was not a warm one either. There is a storm system approaching the area by Thursday and there are still a lot of questions. Let’s take a look at today’s video:

Jeff showed Venus this morning, the closest planet to earth. Did you know that Venus was the first planet, beyond earth, that was visited by a spacecraft and landed on successfully, which happened in 1970? It is the closest planet to earth, has a 225 day year (earth has a 365 day year). One day on Venus lasts around 116 of our days due to a very slowly rotating planet. I just wanted to provide a little info on our closest planet, and this is why it is the brightest object in our sky. It is not a “star”. A “star” is a sun, and this is a planet.
Have a great day and thank you for sharing in this weather experience featuring Weather2020 and the LRC. Go over to the Weather2020 blog to join in the conversation.
