Records Fall

It appears that today's maximum temperature at the Salt Lake City airport was 105ºF, which is a record for the day and I believe the all-time record for June.

Let me see if I can cool you off with some Alaskan weather.  There's probably no place in the world that offers the combination of mountain and marine meteorology like Southeast Alaska.  With the Mendenhall Glacier as a backdrop, we gawked this morning at a stable marine boundary layer with fog.  Those with careful eyes will notice evidence of shear-induced turbulence at the top of the fog layer, which was likely related to thermally driven gap flow into Gastineau Channel.

Yup, it's a world away from Utah.
