I hope you have all been enjoying this La Niña zonal flow! There is nothing like day after day of downsloping winds here in Denver, keeping the temperatures above freezing. In fact, as I type, it's 61ºF at KAPA. Fortunately (or unfortunately), the same kink in the flow that is bringing blizzard conditions to north central Montana will arrive tomorrow evening and give us a chance of cooler weather and snow. Also, we could see a couple severe weather events in the south over the next week. Aside from that, not much exciting is going on. I'd like to write up a "2008 in review" post here fairly soon, so if I get some time this weekend, expect it!
And now, a brief look at the tropics:
We're still quiet out there ...
