A northerly breeze kept cool and blustery conditions around on
Sunday. The breeze also helped to break apart the cloud cover and skies
remained generally clear throughout the afternoon. As a result of more
sunshine than expected, temperatures did eclipse the 50F mark for most
backyards. A little added bonus in the temperature department to cap
off the weekend!
Tonight clear skies lead to a frosty night
with lows in the middle to upper 20s. The clear skies then continue
into the day on Monday, but temperatures will have a tough time climbing
out of the upper 40s. Get ready for the coldest morning the work week
has to offer!
The approach of a large low pressure system to our west brings a lot of warm air ahead of it for the middle of the week. We can expect a modest warm up from Tuesday through Thursday before rain arrives. It will remain to be seen if the next batch of rain can produce gusty showers similar to last week, but what is certain is another cold air plunge awaits behind it.
Another factor to
watch for are the remnants of a Pacific Ocean tropical storm named
Sonia, which is heading toward Mexico now. The leftover moisture from
Sonia looks to merge with the previously mentioned front moving east by
mid-week. This may help produce heavier rain on Thursday for us.
