The weather, currently.

The marine layer pushes temperatures down a smidge

On Monday, the temperatures are going to dip back into the 70’s, so you’ll have a brief intermission from our hot weather before things heat up again later this week. You can thank the marine layer for that, as she’ll be gracing our skies Monday morning with her foggy figure. Those clouds should burn away by 11 am, and then highs will reach roughly 78°F.  

The rest of the day will be sunny and bright, which will keep our evening temperatures floating in the 70’s. The marine layer will attempt to come back late at night, pushing lows towards 60°F, and will hopefully cool down our stuffy, poorly insulated apartments for a good night’s sleep.

How Hurricane Sandy changed meteorology over the past decade
As the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Sandy approaches, former NWS Meteorologist, Gary Szatkowski shares with us the lessons learned.

As the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Sandy approaches — former NWS Meteorologist, and Currently’s own, Gary Szatkowski — shares the lessons learned by meteorologists in the years since Sandy as well as his predictions for the years to come.

Sandy posed a communication challenge for meteorologists, but in the years since the we’ve gotten better at communicating impact to those faced with making the hard decisions in the days leading up to major storms.

Szatkowski says that in the next decade, meteorologists are going to face similar messaging hurdles while trying to express the impacts of climate change when forecasting major storms. Read the full story here.
