After a cloudy day yesterday, there are no clouds this morning. That will change as popcorn cumulus clouds build over the mountains as we warm up this morning. Pic taken 5/27/2021

At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 66 and the low this morning was 35. The cold spots had lows near 30 this morning. Yesterday’s peak wind was 16mph. ** The average last freeze is 31 May. **
A transient upper level ridge will move through today and help keep our winds light. There is just enough moisture and instability for isolated showers and a thunderstorm or two this afternoon, especially over our mountains.
Upper level southwest flow will then take over through Monday when a trough moves through and gives us a good shot at showers and thunderstorms.
Today through next Saturday… Cumulus clouds will build over the mountains each day and a few will turn into afternoon showers and a thunderstorm or two, especially over the mountains. Today is our best chance to see a few rain drops but consider yourself lucky if you get measurable precip.
Today highs will be in the upper 60s to mid-70s and lows will be 30-40. Tomorrow highs will be in the lower to upper 70s and lows will be low 30s to low 40s. Saturday will be even warmer with highs in the mid-70s to lower 80s.
Afternoon winds will peak around 20mph though you get a convective gust to 30mph if you see a big dark cloud nearby.
Sunday through Tuesday… More clouds will build over the mountains leading to afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Monday is our best shot to get measurable precip.
