At Stevens Field the high temperature this afternoon was 80 and the low this morning was 43. Humidity bottomed out at 12% this afternoon.
With humidity at 12% and dew points around 30, there will be a 40-45 degree difference between our highs and lows. ** The cold spots will continue to flirt with freezing temps each morning. **
The peak wind at Stevens Field this afternoon was 31mph. Here in O’Neal Park we had a peak wind of 25mph.
*** The average last freeze is 31 May, but we’re not out of the woods. Average low temps remain in the mid-30s into late 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|

Precipitation summary… There was no precip reported in the last 24-hours.
There is nothing on radar in our region this afternoon.
*** Lots of sun, warm, dry, and breezy afternoons. ***
*** Gusty winds Friday afternoon could lead to blowing dust. ***
Tonight through next Thursday… 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.

Winds… Afternoon gusts will be in the 20-30mph range. Friday the windy spots could hit 35mph. *** Blowing dust is possible in the late Friday afternoon. ***
My next post will be on Saturday.
