Gorgeous. And not California
Hard to beat this weather. The forecast calls for a few clouds, but mostly sunny skies, growing even sunnier as the day wears on. And the nice weather continues for most of the week. Highs in the 70s, lows in the 40s and 50s - great for sleeping. And the AC and the furnace are both silent.
Best of all, we don't live in Los Angeles, where smoke from the big Day Fire to the north of the city is dimming the sun and messing with everyone's air. Here is a shot from orbit of the smoke as it was blowing out to sea a week ago. And here's another, taken last Wednesday, with the wind blowing it straight into L.A.
Our air got a good scrubbing yesterday afternoon as the cold front passed through. Not much rain on the gauge - just 0.04 inch here at the paper, and 0.03 at BWI-Marshall.
But the temperature sure took a plunge, and it got a whole lot drier, too. Out on the WeatherDeck in Cockeysville, the mercury dropped from 80 degrees to 70 degrees in the hour between 2 and 3 p.m. The overnight low was 53.
The Sun's new weather station recorded a drop from 84 degrees to 72 degrees between 3 and 4 p.m. The low early this morning was 62.
