Record Breaking

This morning's visual:
Yesterday was absolutely unbelievably hot here and record breaking.Afternoon temps were 30°C or better.It remained mostly clear and quite warm throughout the evening with temps still near 20 at midnight.Overnight the fog cam ashore and it is a cool 12 here at 7AM.
Today is forecast to be not as hot as yesterday but that may change once the fog lifts.There is still a lot of heat along the NE US coast influencing our weather and that will be lasting atleast another day.
More normal weather should be in place here by the latter part of the week.- ©Al C 2008

HOT!!!

This morning's visual:
It's HOT,HOT,HOt here....end of July weather.
Yesterday was a scorcher with temps hitting 30°C or better and today will be even hotter.It was already 20° at 8AM.Thankfully there is a bit of a breeze.
Regardless of what the forecast says,I expect the hot weather to most likely last another day or so.

Note,I am having a few issues with one of the cams.I hope to get that resolved soon.
