This week we have an Indian summer (and another heat dome)

Here we are, reveling in pumpkins and scarves, and we're all still sweating on our commute to work. New York's Indian summer is here in full force this week: Temps reached 80 degrees today, just two degree shy of temp record set in 1928 (the average for October 18 is 63), and tomorrow may get as hot as 83 degrees. It cools off Thursday, to a high of 72, but still!

There's also a heat dome, a.k.a. a dome of high pressure, looming over us right now, helping to cause this heat. 

Look, we don't mind this long summer, for the most part, but 80 degrees 13 days before Halloween is very spooky, as far as global warming goes. At least we'll be able to wear our skimpy costumes in comfort!
