Warmest Since October


No doubt you’ve heard the news: we’re going to get pretty mild around here. In fact, we may see temperatures not seen here since September and October with widespread 60s across the peninsula. So let’s get into specifics…

Lows tonight won’t be as cold as previously forecasted as we still have plenty of clouds around to keep us cool, but not cold. After a chilly start tomorrow we’ll break out into mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid 50s.

It’s Sunday through Tuesday we have to keep our eyes on and calendars open for. Even though we are now running the risk of more in the way of mid to high level clouds above us on Sunday, it still looks warm with highs bouncing into the low to mid 60s. Lows will be in the 30s to lower 40s.

Mid to maybe even upper 60s are in the forecast for Monday as it looks to be the warmest day of the week. Skies will be mostly sunny.

Low to mid 60s are in the forecast for Tuesday before a gradual break down of the ridge arrives and almost literally rains on our parade. Clouds, rain and cooler temperatures dominate the latter half of next week into next weekend.

Why the sunny and 60º weather had to happen AFTER Spring Break is beyond me. Maybe Mother Nature is taking this April Fool’s thing too seriously? 🙂

Have a great evening. I’ve been quite busy today so I’ll do my “Long Range Thoughts” post tomorrow.
