We are coming off of a 50/50 weekend. Saturday was very wet. Sunday was great with fair skies and highs mainly in the 50s. Today we’ll warm up even more, but there will be some more showers as well. It won’t be like Saturday though. We’ll have some scattered light showers as a warm front lifts through the region.
Our winds started off out of the southeast this morning. That allowed temps to warm to the low 50s. After the warm front pops through our winds will turn to out of the southwest. They will run at 10-15mph with gusts up to 20mph. This will push high temps to the upper 60s. There may even be a couple of 70s on the map. We’ll have mostly cloudy skies, but the sun may pop out a little more at times. The bulk of the scattered showers will fall from the late morning through the early afternoon. By the late afternoon we’ll clear up a bit. We should have a lot of clearing during the evening commute. Tonight skies will clear. Temps will fall to the 30s and 40s. Then we’ll have high temperatures in the low 50s tomorrow with fair skies. The coldest air arrives by Wednesday. Lows will be in the 20s and 30s. Highs will be in the 40s. Then we’ll steadily warm up into next weekend. The weather looks pretty dry from Tuesday through Friday, but I wouldn’t be surprised if a small feature tries to form during that time. Stay tuned for updates.
In national news… A big climate report was released by the federal government on Friday. It is part 2 of an assessment on climate change. The first report was mainly about how humans have had an impact on Climate. The recent report is on the potential impacts on the environment, water, and global economics. There are some pretty interesting things in the report. I read through just a little bit of it. There is a summary available on the same site. Here is the link: Climate Asessment Report.
