Good Morning

Good morning from Massena.

An interesting weather pattern hit the Northeast yesterday afternoon. We had a thunderstorm watch all afternoon and lots of thunderboomers rolled through the area. We even had what the weather folks call 'mild rotation' in a couple of the cells - weather speak for 'potential tornado'.

Did I mention that weather and climate are interests of mine?

The trough in the jet stream that has been causing all of the hot and dry weather out West resulted in a ridge on the East coast which was the root cause of last nights weather. and at the top of the ridge some nice, tight, isobars meaning wicked pressure differential resulting in winds and all around unstable weather.

I was in my glory.
