Thanks to some warm westerly winds, we went from a low of -24.0 °C to a high of around +1.0 °C in just over 36 hours!
A wee bit cooler over the weekend, and then up to +4.0 °C for New Years Day. Let's hope the forecast is accurate!

This is an old warrior who is squaring up for one last fight. And politicians will ignore him at their peril.
His paper, “Epic Fail,” chronicles the decline of Pacific salmon stocks and warns that a total collapse – on the scale of the Atlantic cod catastrophe – is in the making, unless things change.
