Forecast: A little cooler and a few showers midweek. Then your weekend is looking good for the third time in a row. A weak weather system will threaten Tuesday and Wednesday with temperatures back to normal and a little rain. The computer models then show the high pressure build in with nice weather returning by later in the week and continuing through the weekend, but still some clouds at times.
Weather Question of the Week: What is that ring around the sun?
Answer: When you see a ring around the moon or sun, you'd better find your umbrella by the next day. The ring is called a halo. It appears when a thin layer of high cirrus cloud, made up of ice crystals, move in front of the sun or moon. The light is bent like a rainbow and produces the ring. Often times these cirrus clouds precede a weather front, so when you see a halo, expect rain in a day or two.
