Word comes from the Washington Post that the polar vortex has broken and that means, according to the story, a stormy and cold weather pattern is on the way.
In the short term that means a rainy Sunday with temperatures dropping for 55 degrees to 19 degrees overnight as a strong front rolls through.
The forecast for the next 10 days or so cold temperatures, rain and, at times, strong winds. Not sailing conditions even for a dry-suited sailor. The Post story says the weather pattern should peak in a couple of weeks. Here's hoping for some sailing weather in February.
