Takin' It To The Streets
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Howling winds whipped the leaves into a frenzy early today. Gusts around noontime peaked at 60+ in some areas...
...and the trees/powerlines came crashing down. This was from Holly Street in Watertown.
(Thanks to Marek Kozubal KB1NCG for that picture.)
The nasty gusts were from a strong storm system that curled up and intensified across Southern Ontario. As quickly as it ramped up, it pulled back this afternoon. Winds are now down to the 20-25 mph range, which constitutes a normal November evening for these parts.
Cool air is coming, but give it another day. We're still in the low 60s tomorrow, albeit with limited sun. Sox parade looks great - nothing cold, nothing wet...let's party!!!
Sharply colder air pours in on Sunday. We'll have a chance to get a glimpse of the solar eclipse, but you have to get up early. The moon will cover about 54% of the sun right at sunrise - 6:20am. If you get up at 7am, it will be over. Hampering the viewing will be the ever-present clouds...truthfully, I'm not expecting much of it will be visible.
Bright but cold to start next week. Highs start in the 40s, but we'll claw our way back to the 60s by late week.
Make it a good weekend. I'll see you at the rally!!!!!!!!!!!!
