Temperature: 48°F

Dew point: 43°F

Pressure: 1018

Cloud cover: 7/8

Cloud Type: Stratocumulus, Altostratus

Winds: South 7mph

Weather: breezy; not too cold

Summary: I was wearing a crew sweatshirt with jeans and canvas shoes. It was a little breezy but nothing too intense. There was a lot of cloud cover but you could still see the sun. It wasn't as cold as those previous days. My hands were exposed and I was still able to write.

Forecast for tomorrow: I predict that the weather is going to drop to the mid 30s along with clear skies and strong winds. The pressure will go up one or two. I think there will be altostratus clouds. Dew point will stay about the same.

Temperature: 49°F

Dew point: 37°F

Pressure: 1021

Cloud cover: 1/8

Cloud Type: Cirrus

Winds: West 3mph

Weather: Sunny, Warm, Calm

Summary: Despite the fact that the temperature dropped from yesterday, it feels a little warmer since there is less cloud cover, letting the sun shine down on us. There are very calm winds. There are cirrus clouds above us mixed with plane trails. I am wearing my blue jeans with uggs and a lightweight pullover.

Forecast for tomorrow: I think the weather is going to continue to drop along with the dew point. There will be more cloud cover than there was today (maybe with little rain) with faster winds. The pressure will stay about the same.

Temperature: 43°F

Dew point: 27°F

Pressure: 1022

Cloud cover: 3/8

Cloud Type: Altostratus, Cirrus

Winds: North 5mph

Weather: Sunny, Breezy

Summary: Today felt a little bit colder than yesterday since there was a little more wind. The air felt dry making my hair kind of static. There were more cloud cover today than there were yesterday, I personally think that was the reason why it felt cooler. I was wearing a heavier jacket than I was yesterday with a leggings and tennis shoes. My legging weren't as thick so my legs felt cooler than the rest of my body.

Forecast for tomorrow: I predict that the weather is going to get colder with heavier winds. The pressure will stay about the same with clear (zero cloud cover) sunny, skies.
