At Stevens Field the high temperature this afternoon was 73 and the low this morning was 35. Humidity bottomed out at 22% this afternoon.
The cold spots dipped into the upper 20s yesterday morning and again this morning.
The peak wind at Stevens Field this afternoon was 21mph. Here in O’Neal Park we had a peak wind of 18mph.
*** The average last freeze is 31 May, but we’re not out of the woods. Average low temps remain in the mid-30s into the third week of June so temps can still drop below freezing. ***
What is a cold spot? Cold spots are lower areas like valleys, drainages, and stream areas. If your morning low temps are usually at the bottom of our forecast range, you are in a cold spot.
|Average High||Record High / Year||Average Low||Record Low / Year|
|78||90 / 1947||35||23 / 1951|
Precipitation summary… A few weak showers and a thunderstorm or two moved through the area yesterday but precip reports were light.
*** The cold spots will flirt with freezing morning temps through Saturday morning. ***
Rest of today through Saturday evening… We’ll be mostly sunny, mostly dry, and temps will gradually warm. A stray afternoon shower or thunderstorm is possible over the mountains. The best chance for showers and thunderstorms will be Saturday afternoon but they’ll be spotty.
Temps… Highs will be in the mid-60s to mid-70s and lows will be in the low 30s to low 40s.
Winds… Afternoon gusts will be in the 15-25mph range.
Sunday through Wednesday… A ridge will build just to our east and a trough will linger along the West Coast. This puts us in the sunny, dry, warmer, and breezy spot in between.
Temps… Highs will be in the mid-70s to mid-80s and lows will be in the mid-30s to mid-40s.
Winds… Afternoon gusts will be in the 20-25mph range.
My next post will be on Friday.
