All About OKTA’s

Mostly cloudy? Partially sunny? Fair weather? When you’re in between two mountain ranges, you may see it all!

Tortuga is by the river, nestled in a campsite, enjoying the many climatic changes.

The weather doesn’t matter. Turn up the heat? Turn on the fans? Open the widows, sit under the awning, cozy up to a late night fire ( and smell like a chimney). All in a day’s work.

However, keep bear spray close at hand. A gigantic black bear has been visiting close by, prompting all kinds of state and federal agencies to react. Part of the fun.

But, what is an OKTA? In meteorology, an okta is a unit of measurement used to describe the amount of cloud cover at any given location such as a weather station. Sky conditions are estimated in terms of how many eighths of the sky are covered in cloud, ranging from 0 oktas (completely clear sky) through to 8 oktas (completely overcast). There. Now we know. Scattered clouds … 3 to 4 OKTAs.
