If you want to catch the flyover, look to the northwestern sky about 10 degrees above the horizon. it will disappear at about 46 degrees above the horizon.  It will look like a moving star in the sky!

    A COLD blast will strike the area late this week, and as that colder air settles in, we'll have a couple opportunities for snow across our area. The mountains stand the best chance for seeing any white stuff, but the Upstate MIGHT get some light snow showers on Friday or perhaps late Saturday. Our two long range models are not in very good agreement, so let's talk about the options... GFS Model - This is the American model. It has the cold air blasting in and pushing to the coastline...

It will appear bigger in the sky because it will be the closest moon has been to earth all year.  The full moon of December is often called the Long Night Moon, since our hours of darkness are maximized in the month.  The moon will appear 30% bigger than it typically looks, plus it will be brighter! Skies should be mostly clear so enjoy the only Super Moon of 2017!
