As the last of our evening storms went “poof” yesterday, we were left with a great sunset with virga falling out of the clouds. © 2023-Mark Langford

At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 68 and the low this morning was 36 degrees. Winds gusted to 25mph during a thunderstorm. Some of the low spots (like our home about a mile north of Hatcher Lake) saw freezing temperatures this morning!
Precipitation summary: As forecast, our COCORAHS observers reported pretty wimpy rainfall totals of zero to 0.03 inches.

As expected, the low pressure moved north out of southern California into Nevada over the past 24hrs, sending drier air into our area. Another low moves into southern California this weekend, but we will stay on the dry side of the circulation. For now, we are looking at fair weather for at least 7-10 days. Some of the models think we will get more active during the last 10 days of the month, but we shall see.
The rest of the day: Partly cloudy with highs in low to mid 70’s. SW winds 10-15mph with gusts to 20.
Friday-Sunday: Partly cloudy. Lows in the upper 30’s to mid 40’s and highs in low to mid 70’s. SW winds 10-15mph, with gusts to 20mph.
Monday-Tuesday: Partly cloudy and a little cooler and breezier with lows in the upper 30’s to mid 40’s and highs in upper 60’s to low 70’s. SW winds 15-20mph, with gusts to 30mph.
