What's Up With the Weather?

Back in October I was all set to do my final pack trip of the season, but we backed out at the last minute based on reports of a big storm. In the end, it was a windy storm and it dropped a little snow but that was about it. Since then central California has been stuck in an Indian Summer weather pattern – dry and record warmth.

I know that we real winter (or what passes for winter in coastal California) doesn’t get going until somewhat later in the season than one might expect. But by November we have typically had at least a few decent storms come through, the weather has turned colder, and things are generally more damp. Not this year. Today and tomorrow there is a “red flag alert” in the Bay Area due to dry conditions that could lead to wildfires.
