Big atmospheric river


This is a photo of the atmospheric river that is currently drenching us in wet, warm and windy weather.  It extends all the way down to and west of Hawaii and is one of the biggest atmospheric rivers to ever hit our coast.

It is what it says it is.  A river of moisture coming along the upper atmosphere driving tropical moisture on to our coast.  We're due 50-80 mm of rain over the  next couple of days, which is 2-3 inches.  It is currently cascading off the house.

I went out for a walk this evening, down to the Cove to get some food for dinner, in the dark and the wind and the rain.  I had only a t shirt on under my rain jacket, it was so warm.

There is no such thing as bad weather.  Only bad clothing.  Enjoy the rain.
