We’ll be getting this nice little rest today from the dryness. After today though, it’s back to the sunshine and warm temperatures. We should get up into the mid to upper 20s for the rest of the week with a slight chance of breaking 30.

I don’t know how many of you followed Hurricane Bills path last weekend, but I did. There was apparently a buoy near Sable Island off the coast of Nova Scotia that went right through the Eye of Bill and recorded regular waves of 50ft with extreme waves up to 80ft! Yikes.

There is a lot more activity in the Pacific this year as far as Hurricanes go than there is in the Atlantic. If you’re interested in checking them out. You can go to the National Hurricane center in the US for the East Pacific out to Hawaii. Once they get into the Central and Western Pacific you need to go to US Navys Joint Typhoon Warning Center.

The Central Pacific storms are the most interesting for us as they are the ones most likely (though not very) of recurving back to hit us as an Extra Tropical storm. (As the remants of Bill are doing now to the UK).

Typhoon 11W “Vamco” is currently disintegrating from a strong Typhoon into an Extra Tropical (ET) storm. It’s remnants are headed to the Bering Sea where they are supposed to reform a little and then come and give us some clouds and possible rain next week.
