We had a light amount of cold drizzle this evening; we took a sample swipe from the truck and the reading returned 9x greater than background radiation. Post August 2011, this is a surprisingly low reading from the leading edge of the Northern Jetstream. Currently we have low level warm air and high level cold air, with drizzle that occasional contains a small amount of sleet.
Since the August down turn in Fukushima, we typically receive a MINIMUM of 20x background radiation from the Northerly Jetstream fallout. Hopefully this lower reading is a sign of improving conditions at Fukushima. The highest readings we have had to date were 276X greater-than-background radiation on 10/17/11 (see video below). By comparison today's readings are a great improvement, however 3x background is the maximum we would have expected pre-Fukushima.
