TUNDRA at Town Beach 655 am 1-23-2014

A Morning Sunrise from The "Tundra" at Town Beach - West Island, Thursday, January 23, 2014. The temperature at 7:18 AM was 9.5 degrees with a wind chill of -4.28 degrees below zero. The wind was out of the NW at 10 with a gust to 20MPH. The dew point is extremely dry at -2 below zero. The upper level clouds are mostly high cirrus made up of ice crystals. Icing has begun building up along the shoreline - although they say salt water freezes at 28, it's actually 17 degrees. More storm action on the horizon - this winter isn't even half way through and neither is the brutal cold air mass that won't give us any significant break. We are actually colder than Alaska right now. Photo from WIWS Axis Cam at South Point 655AM 1-23-2014.
