"All Apologies" from this meteorologist if this 5 day trend will "Drain You" of enthusiasm for this winter. It could be awhile before we're "In Bloom" so "Come As You Are" (as long as it includes rain gear). And keep that "Lithium" ion battery charged in your phone. #wawx

With "The Dark Side of the Moon" mostly facing Earth tomorrow, it might be worth being "Comfortably Numb" in the chilly morning temperatures to see "The Great Gig in the Sky" before sunrise as Venus pairs with a crescent Moon and Mercury. You'll "Wish You Were Here". #wawx
