A chilly start after the passage of the front yesterday, with current temperatures (10 am) in the low to mid 50s. This is well reflected on the temperature change map as well, as many locations this time yesterday were closer to the low to mid 60 point. Not to worry though, much warmer air is set to return in the coming days. As far as today, a beautiful one is on tap. Just like morning temps, highs will be cool comparably, topping out in the mid 60s. Winds will be a bit breezy as well, blowing out of the west between 10-20 mph and a few gusts to around 30 mph.
Moving forward through the week, high pressure will mosey northward bringing continued sunshine and warming temperatures. Highs will bounce 10+ degrees Tuesday in the mid to upper 70s, followed by 80 Wednesday and Thursday. A western USA low will then meander east, bringing rain or storm chances into Friday.
Comparing the warming trend we have ahead to seasonal averages, it's going to be a warm one. Highs Thursday will be the warmest of the week, in the low to mid 80s, and this is 10+ degrees warmer than average. I would not be surprised to see a few upper 80 readings before the end of the day Thursday as well.
Overall, a very quiet next couple of days with warming temperatures the biggest highlight. Showers or storm chances hold off until Friday and the weekend, with cooler temperatures to again follow after the system passes. Enjoy the beautiful weather the next few days!
