Currently in Los Angeles — June 6th, 2022

A grey morning, but then sunny and warm

The weather, currently.

Though the weekend wrapped with a wonderfully sunny day, Monday will bring us a foggy marine layer morning, which will make it harder for you to get back into work mode. The temperature, however, will creep up to highs near 80°F, kicking off a warming trend that will follow us throughout the week. The summer vibes really got be preparing for the season. I’m reevaluating my swim suits, scheduling a wax, wondering if my vintage dresses are too heavy for the climate. These thoughts will chase me into late night over-analysis, when the skies begin to clear and lows fall to roughly 61°F.

Wragge was a visionary freak among meteorologists — orphaned at the age of five, he was trained in cosmology and meteorology by his grandmother and would later become quite interested in spiritualism. By most accounts, he was a foul-mouthed, short-tempered man, with a turbulent personal life and an unlikely relationship with Brigham Young, but today he’s generally regarded as one of the more influential figures in weather forecasting.”
