The ECT folks like others always curious why our local Weather is the way it is…or in this years case why so unseasonably cool and wet.
This week the ECT offers some hard evidence – the GOES west – Water Vapor satellite photo from May 26th 2011.
The digital image shows that the more northerly Pacific Ocean and current Jet Stream flows that have dominated our local Weather for weeks. This pattern of cool air and high moisture content has been sustained for some time.
Why this pattern? Not sure – ECT still struggling with the “what” part of the local Weather question.
