I'm Outta Here!
There's not much worth saying today...
It's cooling off here in the Inland Valley...it's a symptom of the little wave of low pressure that's coming ashore tonight. It'll stir things up some, but it still won't qualify as the Pattern Change.
My weekend is at hand, but I'm keeping an eye on a couple of items:
Hurricane Rick strengthened to Catagory 5 Saturday afternoon, and models have it making landfall Wednesday...a day earlier than modeled before. The storm track has trended south, and Cabo San Lucas is in Rick's crosshairs now.
Atop the Mountain, temperatures remain high. For those who are keeping score, Tuesday the 12th was the last time temps dipped below freezing at 7200ft...noon Wednesday was the last time the mercury was in the 30's, and highs through the six day period remained in the mid-60's until today. Today the temperature rise stopped at the mid-50's about noontime.
I'm wondering if Boreal will get their Snowmaking up and running before all their snow melts away...
Around the rest of the country, many new weather records fell this week, notably many cold records were set in the Northern Tier, though Florida set some High Temp records at the same time.
The lead story at Anthony Watts' Site chronicles the 4500 new records.
Tonight I'll be seeing the Premier of the documentary "Not Evil Just Wrong" by film makers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney. More on the Unintended Consequences of Environmentalism's Anti-Human Bias...A Real Inconvenient Truth?
