CBL development yesterday was even more pathetic as slight warming above the surface kept it capped off at just above 850 mb.
Haze was quite apparent both afternoons, although DAQ observations from Hawthorne Elementary School suggest PM2.5 levels remain well below ambient air quality standards.
Nevertheless, as a caveman would put it, we are moving quickly from "ridge good" to "ridge bad" territory. What's unfortunate is that we could use some storms now for SOLPEX and some ridging in December for PCAPS. On the otherhand, as discussed in an earlier post, a dry October is good for skiers.
