Lousy Weather and Aurora Forecasts!

Checked the internet just to fond out that the Aurora Forecast was updated yesterday… and is expected a Level 1 on Aurora activity (there’s only one worst - Level 0) for the 8th December – the day on which was booked the “Northern Lights search for clear sky” with a local photographer in order to increase my chances of finding some good spots where to see Aurora!!!! What a bad luck… actually I use some more unpleasant words, but in Portuguese, so you better think it was just some untranslatable comments ;-)

After this, on 4th December, the weather forecast also got worst, with a prediction of a warm +5ºC (in December at latitude N70!!! the arctic is getting tropical… my thought amongst some other untranslatable comments) with some rain on the days before we arrive – just in case some snow resist on melting with the warm temperature, this should do it – what the hell, it’s getting perfect conditions for a total screw up!!! grrrrr!

Yeah.. Its weird if you compare to other places with N70 its incredible. Like Canada probably have -30 at the same latitudes.

I know that's the explanation for it, but it's kind of weird when you think of it...

5degrees at 70degrees is not so uncommon anymore. Global Warming and the gulf stream are the answers. Its getting colder if you go inland
