Early November Warm Up Is Underway

After being stuck in the cool 40’s yesterday, highs on Sunday will be quickly rising in the afternoon climbing into the 50’s to near 60 in a few isolated spots. Tonight will be cool, clear and calm…but not as cool as last night thanks to a warmer SW wind direction. Lows will fall into the 30’s overnight.

The Weather Is Golden…Feel of Indian Summer To Return

The weekend weather is all about wind direction and airmass. Northerly winds are directing cool air from Canada over the region today. Winds are gusty on the Cape & islands and will die down during the afternoon. Temps at 850 are near 0 C, so cool northerly winds with this kind of airmass will help to keep temps mostly in the 40’s to near 50 even with 100% of the sun. Ocean effect cloudiness will be effecting the Cape and the islands into the afternoon.

The Super Moon Cometh!

The last time we saw a moon this large was way back in March of 1993…and if you miss it this year, you will have to wait until the year 2029 to see it again!

Climate Change Discussion..A Warming World

I think both sides provide very convincing arguments and data to support their point of view. It is a fascinating topic…and an evolving science which needs debate and discussion to be open…not sequestered.
