A Pattern Shift Will Usher in Some More Summer-like Weather

It’s been more than three weeks since we’ve really experienced any type of prolonged stretch of summer weather in our region as Canadian high pressure and a northwesterly jet stream pattern have been working to keep things cool and fall-like.  However, there appears to be a shift toward more seasonal, August-like weather in our future, perhaps […]

Looking Back at May 2013

So far June has been a little kinder to us than May as each day has featured at least a decent window of sunshine and even the rain we’ve seen has been fairly light.  May, on the other hand, certainly did feature a ridiculous amount of rainfall and even quite a dumping of snow!  Looking back at […]

Leonid Meteor Shower

Even though it may not feel like it, we are in fact now in the middle of November, a part of the year more associated with clouds and high temperatures in the 40s than the clear skies and 50s we’re expecting for most of the next week, a continuation of our current warm spell.  Another item […]
