Sunny Sunday, with pleasant high near 83 degrees. West winds 5 to 9 mph becoming southwest in the afternoon. There is lots of sunshine foretasted for this morning.... Enjoy!

The rest of the day looks great as well, so get out there and enjoy it while mother nature cooperates.

If you want to get out of this world, here is a word to the wise: The application deadline for a one-way mission to Mars is getting close. Approximately 165,000 people have applied to join the manned Martian colony envisioned by the non-profit Mars One Foundation. But they're only accepting applications until Aug. 31.

After Aug. 31, Mars One officials will start reviewing all applicants. A requirement to apply is to be over age 18. The plan to identify those most likely to thrive on the nine-month journey to the Red Planet, and in the settlement to be established upon arrival.

NYC's Labor Day Weekend looks fantastic, so make sure your plans are made, if you decide to stay right here on earth with the rest of us.
