At Stevens Field the high temperature this afternoon was 76 and the low this morning was 38. Humidity bottomed out at 17% this afternoon.
* The cold spots were right at freezing the last two mornings. *
The peak wind at Stevens Field this afternoon was 27mph. Here in O’Neal Park we had a peak wind of 28mph.
*** 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.

Precipitation summary… A couple of bands of showers moved through yesterday.
There is nothing on radar in our region this afternoon.
*** Lots of sun, warmer, dry, and breezy afternoons. ***
Rest of today through next Sunday… A ridge will remain stationary 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. Monday and Friday the windy spots could hit 30mph.
My next post will be Tuesday.
