Stunning Sea Smoke

It’s not often that we get to see Sea Smoke on the Hudson, but today’s Arctic blast set the stage for some beautiful scenery.

Sea smoke billows up when the water temperature is MUCH warmer than the air — at least 30 degrees warmer.

This morning, it was 5 degrees Fahrenheit in New York, and the water temperature at the Battery was 38 degrees.

The perfect differential for a stunning display!
