many of you know that i am "out of station"... in the US until early january. for that reason, i really appreciate all the emails and facebook messages letting me know what's happening there! although i can access some data online (satellite pics, computer model data), often the best way to keep on top of the weather is simply to be able to take your own measurements and look out the window!!
our last couple of days of cooler, wetter and cloudier weather has brought a taste of winter to the area... but it looks like increasing sunshine AND increasing temperatures are on the way during the next several days. please feel free to post any of your own observations in the COMMENTS section of the blog... that way everyone can see them... which is helpful during this time that i am away.
