  • After a cloudy start to the day, skies have cleared out across the south coast for another fair afternoon
  • Right now we are sitting in a bit of an upper level ridge, following the break-down of yesterday`s spinning low off the coast, and an approaching Pacific low 
  • Tomorrow will begin with sunshine but clouds will increase through the afternoon with the chance of evening showers as the Pacific frontal system begins to make it`s way onshore
  • Unsettled conditions will prevail through the rest of the week with showers in the forecast right through to Sunday at this point
  • Not a wash-out of a forecast though.. we should get some sunny breaks in the forecast between the showers most days and looks like beginning early next week our summer-like pattern returns
  • There is a general thunderstorm watch in place once again today for the interior for the risk of afternoon/evening thunderstorms in the unstable air.. big risk for fire-starts as well

In Dying Brains, Signs of Heightened Consciousness
  • A new study is causing a bit of a buzz today: Scientists have discovered that rats show an unexpected pattern of brain activity immediately after cardiac arrest. 
  • With neither breath nor heartbeats, these rodents were clinically dead but for at least 30 seconds, their brains showed several signals of conscious thought, and strong signals to boot.
  • This suggests that our final journey into permanent unconsciousness may actually involve a brief state of heightened consciousness."Near-death experiences are a physiological reality, but science and medicine haven't taken them seriously for way too long,"
