    This weather (amount of snow) is unusual, but a large wet front came in from the Pacific Ocean - colliding with a Arctic blast coming down from Canada, and now it's heading Eastward.

    Note on the other-side west of the Cascades (Seattle), it was a rain event.

    Here's a graph of the weather last evening:

    At least here in Finland in the recent years we have had snow in late October, but not this year so far and I mean the most southern part where I live, northern part is a different story. Usually first snow comes normally in early November though and then melts away.

    Question

    An in-depth discussion with the author ...

    James Raffan: A Polar Bear's Journey Through the Arctic


    Scientists estimate polar bears might be extinct by 2100. But how much of this is because of anthropogenic climate change? Explorer and best-selling author James Raffan discusses this and his latest book, "Ice Walker: A Polar Bear's Journey Through the Fragile Arctic." Raffan was recently named by Canadian Geographic as one of the ,90 most influential explorers in the nation's recorded history,, and has spent four decades living and working in the circumpolar world of Canada's far north.
