Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
In Juneau, Alaska today, we are forecast to have one more bright, dry day, closing October's record-breaking month. The weather in Juneau is typically cool, even nippy (we are at latitude 58) pretty much year 'round with lots of rain, right at 100 inches of it, on top of another 100 inches or so of winter time snow. These last couple of years have not been normal - last winter the ground didn't freeze to any depth. And now, just like many other places in the world, we're having record-breaking temperatures.
I'm hoping for a snowy winter this year- we're far enough north - and with mountains all around - that warmth traveling to us from the south may react to the Pacific Ocean outside our door and give us snow instead of rain. Fingers crossed.
