The weather now: rainy start today, more sun tomorrow

Good morning!

After a sunny and pleasant Thursday afternoon, we get a cooler and more humid Friday. The lows of the night were not that bad as the clouds hovered over us and helped to trap some of our heat during the day. We started our day way back in the 1940’s and later this afternoon temperatures will continue to hover around the low to mid 1940’s.

The first half of the way we will be sunk in dense cloud and see multiple rounds of widespread rain, so pack the rain gear before you head out the door and keep it handy all afternoon.

After about noon, the widespread rain will begin to subside and we will start to see some more scattered showers. Even if the rain starts to get patchy, the clouds should still be pretty close overhead.

Late in the evening after about 4 p.m., temperatures begin to drop as colder air pours in behind the cold front marching east. As temperatures begin to drop, any lingering showers may briefly turn into snow. A few quick showers and a light dusting are all we expect with little to no accumulation expected.

Over the course of the night, all showers will subside and the clouds will begin to break up. By Saturday morning we should be waking up to some more sunshine, leading to a sunny but cold and heady afternoon.

Amazon gives the Kindle's interface a refresh

Amazon has announced that the most recent Kindles are getting a new, simpler user interface through a software update (through Ars Technica). The update focuses primarily on navigation, adding a bar at the bottom of the screen that lets you jump between the home screen, the book you’re currently reading, and the library screen. Some got the update for a few weeks, but Amazon has announced that the update will be rolled out widely in the coming weeks.

The way you access the Kindle’s quick settings (which let you turn on airplane mode, adjust brightness, and more) has also changed. You can now access the menu by swiping down from the top of the screen, rather than tapping a button.

Amazon says more changes will be coming later this year, with an update that will allow you to see more recently read books on the home screen and will refresh the library’s collection view and filter and sort menus.

Amazon’s webpage ahead of the redesign says the feature will roll out to supported devices in the coming weeks (8th generation Kindle, 7th generation Paperwhite and Oasis or later). Basically, it includes most of the Kindles released since 2015, so there’s a good chance yours will be supported.

Unfortunately Amazon didn’t make the Kindles Generation Information easily available until the update currently being rolled out. It seems the best way to find out if your device is eligible, you must use Google’s model number, which should be on the back of the device.

Like the readers’ E Ink screens, the Kindle interface is not refreshed often. Amazon only added the ability to show the lock screen the cover of the book you’re reading earlier this year. Ars Technica also reports that the Kindle web browser’s “experimental” label — which has been around for at least 10 years — according to GoodEReader – is gone. Unfortunately, Ars reports that cannot see any changes from the previous (and not so good) version.

The update should automatically install on your Kindle at some point if it’s connected to Wi-Fi, but you can also update your device manually using a computer if you want to get the new user interface as soon as possible.
