August 7, 2007

Today was a gorgeous eighty some degrees served with a smog-in-the-morning and lush haze compote and finished with a clear afternoon blue bath shooter.

A sunny day can trick you into thinking everything is going your way. Los Angeles has a stop-gap system for making you think this for too long and it involves traffic. Sometimes its really congested and sometimes people just drive the wrong way down a street.

Similar to this psychological stop-gap, Los Angeles is known for what we in the weather world call inversions. An inversion is a layer of warm air in the atmosphere that prevents the rise of cooling air and traps pollutants beneath it. So all this glorified warm weather is actually just trapped pollutants. If I weren't writing a weather blog I would get crackin' on an in depth celebrity metaphor and publish it right here scientology.

God bless.
