Once the fog burns off this morning you should find a pretty nice day today and also tomorrow when it might get into the mid 20s again.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are a downhill slide into rain with early Thursday looking like the wettest period for us.

I feel like I’d be remiss if I didn’t also mention that this years Arctic sea ice melt season finished very near or below a record low this year (Depending on the data used). And the total volume (which includes thickness) is the lowest ever recorded.

A number of forecasters are predicting that the low sea ice combined with the La Nina conditions in the Pacific should again produce weather patterns in North America and Western Europe like we saw last year. Namely unusually warm patterns over the Arctic pushing cold air down into the Eastern seaboard of the US and England.
