Sunday's Fall Back Edition (updated)

Noon update

After a cool (but not cold) start, we're looking a fine afternoon: nothing but sunshine with temperatures rising into the high 60s.

And in other weather news, Hurricane Beta made landfall in Nicaragua as a Category 2 storm, and will weaken as it drops torrential rains over the country.

Weather Man Thoughts

After reading mixed reviews and watching the underwhelming preview, I had low expectations for this movie.

The film is certainly not for everyone. If you're looking for a fast paced action flick or feel good type movie (or are easily offended by excessive profanity), you will not enjoy this. But I liked it and found it to be a sophisticated and surprisingly engrossing film. The movie makes you think and provides insightful social commentary about the way people choose to live their lives and the repercussions.

It's definitely a dark film, but interspersed with humor. The character development is strong and the acting good. I also appreciated its use of metaphors, and top notch cinematography. My only real issue with it was that it unfairly trivialized meteorology.

All in all, I give it two thumbs up and three stars out of four.

  • The Washington Post ran a feature yesterday about a 74-old sailor rescued from last week's storm at sea. Interesting read.
  • WeatherTalkRadio, with Tony Pann and Justin Berk, is on at 3pm today on WCBM 680AM.
  • The National Hurricane Center says winds are conducive for slow development of a tropical wave 300 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.


As it's going to be cold, it's a good morning to enjoy the extra hour of sleep. I'll have a full post later this morning, including my thoughts on "The Weather Man" which I just saw. In the mean time, enjoy this wonderful photo taken by photographer Kevin Ambrose at sunrise yesterday...
