We had yet another day in the 50′s today. In fact, today was the coldest of the last five: the official high this afternoon was 55 degrees after the coldest morning since last weekend (31°). The normal high this time of year is in the low 60′s:
Strong south/southwest winds and sunshine over the next two days will change our temperatures to something more like Spring. Tomorrow will get in the low 70′s, on Monday we’ll have the warmest day so far this year, the low 80′s:
The humidity is going to stay reasonable low. With the low dewpoints and the strong winds a Red Flag Warning is in effect for the western counties for tomorrow (and likely on Monday as well):
The weather will hcange with a strong cold front that arrives on Monday night. Highs on Tuesday will get right back to 50′s. This won’t last: we’ll have highs get back to the 60′s by Thursday and Friday.
Monday nights front will produce some strong northwest winds overnight and Tuesday but it won’t produce much in rain chances. The air will be too dry! The next decent rain chance shows up on Saturday but it’s more likely to arrive in force on Sunday. It is possible that we’ll have the threat of severe weather then but more on that tomorrow.
