We may have the warmest autumn in years, according to the weather super geek Cliff Mass.
He makes his argument based on the National Weather Service’s long-range forecasting system. Apparently there is a “blob” of “highly persistent area of warm water west” of our coast in the Pacific Northwest. He says this is bringing warmer air to us.
“Since the air that reaches the Northwest comes off the Pacific, you don’t have to be a meteorologist to understand that they will tend to warm our area,” Mass writes. “The warm blob has been very persistent and will certainly remain in place for the next month or two.”
Great news for us.
It is currently 50 degrees on Drayton’s Passage and the weather geeks say our high today will be north of 80.
Perfect, I say.
It was also a beautiful morning to take a walk down to the beach. The sunlight assaulted my eyes as I began my descent down our ladder. You could almost smell autumn in the air. The leaves on our maple trees are starting to betray fall’s arrival, and Ozzie the barred owl hoots his presence.
Good morning Longbranch.
