In which we can see the weather coming
You know it’s going to be hot and sticky when it’s still only half-seven in the morning and you can already see the inversion layer.
Inversion layer: when warm air gets trapped under colder. It lies, stagnant. You can see it, because it fills up with trapped smoke and muck and pollution. Even in the countryside, it sticks like a brown haze.
When you see that, you know it’s going to be a nasty, sticky day.
