Hoodie season is here!
Hello! Cooler weather is here to stay. Regrettably, weekend rain is too 🤦♂️ (more on that later)…
40s, 50s, and 60s have quickly become the rule and that looks to continue during the week ahead — “hoodie season” is here…
☃️ On that note… ARE YOU READY for a new hoodie ⁉️
My new merch collection for the 2023-24 snowy season just dropped! 👕
This year's theme is "I'm ready for a..." and the merch let's you take a test to see what you're ready for. Hint: there are no wrong answers 😛
It's always an exciting time of the year as we wait for the first winter storm to come around... and my winter outlook next weekend!
In the meantime, show your readiness and make a statement with a new shirt, crewneck, or hoodie 💯
As for the week ahead, Monday-Thursday don’t look half bad. Things will probably go downhill in the Friday-Saturday time frame (again 🙄), setting the stage for a gloomy period around the start of the weekend.
🤔 Why does it keep raining on the weekend? The pattern that we’re in involves an active jet stream from the Pacific Ocean to the the United States. Along this fast-flowing air stream, it takes storms 5-7 days to track from the North Pacific Ocean to the Northeast U.S. — right now, the 5-7 day periodicity just-so-happens to coincide with our weekends!
If it rains next Saturday, October 21st, it will become the 5th consecutive wet Saturday in a row! The soggy Saturday streak started back on September 23rd.
As a consolation prize, right now it looks like this pattern will come to an end during the last week of the month…
Monday: a mix of clouds and sun with passing showers likely, mainly during the afternoon 🌦️
Tuesday: similar to Monday
Wednesday: like Monday and Tuesday!
Thursday: becoming warmer with some sun 📈
Friday: mild with increasing clouds, a chance for some rain, mainly later
Saturday-Sunday: some rain possible on Saturday , cooler with showers potentially continuing on Sunday
The week of October 23rd will start cool and there is a chance for a frost around the 24th or 25th. A large and strong area of high pressure will likely cause a warming trend thereafter, with drier than normal conditions prevailing.
In the tropics, a storm named Tammy is expected to form this week. The long-term risk to the U.S. is low.
My winter outlook will be released to premium subscribers next Saturday, October 21st. It will then be open to all on Sunday, October 22nd.

Here’s what it looks like…
Here's what it looks like when you dip a camera into a river in New Zealand!
This river is fed by pure, glacial meltwater that snakes down from around 5000 feet up.
The result is unbelievable clarity that almost doesn't look real!
You could even fill up your water bottle here for some icy refreshment.
As evidenced by the snow in the background and glacial source, the water is freezing! Not to mention, the flow is very substantial. I could only keep my hand submerged for a minute!
Care must be taken in backcountry regions that are subject to flash flooding and extreme flows and an in-depth knowledge of weather conditions is needed to film this safely.
