A Change of Season

A breeze is coming in – the warm season to cool season transition begins. The air masses battle again to control these latitudes. The strong Mexican high that brings the desert monsoons pushes up for a last hurrah, the Aleutian low sends massive pushes of Pacific winter storms into the Great Basin. The “Santa Ana” winds pick up. Intense high pressure areas form, creating bizarre October heatwaves, then they break like a fever as first major winter storm crashes in. A last tropical storm breaks up out over the subtropical North Pacific out Hawai’i way, a cold front swallows the moisture to bring a deep, drenching early rain to the Big Sur coast. Below the growing turmoil in the atmosphere, the leaves of the earth-achored deciduous trees turn color. The snow level drops. And it’s winter. Cheers!
