Precipitation summary… No measurable precip was reported in the last 24 hours.
There is nothing significant on radar in our region this afternoon.
*** A multi-day period of warm temps has increased run-off again. Area streams are on the rise. ***
Rest of today through Monday… Ridging and upper level northwest flow will continue to bring us fantastic spring weather. Occasional patches of clouds will move through, but we’ll have lots of sun and pleasant temps.
Temps… Lows tonight will be in the high 20s to high 30s. Tomorrow highs in the high 60s to mid-70s and lows will be in the high 20s to high 30s.
Winds… Tomorrow afternoon peaks will be around 15mph.
Tuesday through Thursday… The ridge will push to our east and upper level southwest flow will increase as a slow moving low pressure system meanders around the CA and NV area. We’ll be on the eastern edge of that system and will see a few more clouds and a slight chance for spotty afternoon showers and a thunderstorm or two.
Temps… Tuesday and Wednesday highs will be in the low 60s to low 70s and lows will be in the high 20s to high 30s. Thursday temps will be a little cooler with highs in the high 50s to high 60s and lows in the mid-20s to mid-30s.
Winds… Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon winds will peak in the 15-20mph range. Winds Thursday afternoon will be a little stronger with gusts in the 20-25mph range.
I plan to do the April Summary and May Outlook tomorrow. My next forecast post will be on Tuesday.
