Gorgeous but cool morning with temps overnight dropping to near freezing and even below in some locations. High pressure continue to have control over the region, although an area of low pressure will pass to our south today and spread increasing clouds across the region and even a spotty shower or two across our southern zones. These mostly cloudy conditions will linger through tomorrow, moisture with this system is unimpressive, also it’s track far to our south so only spotty showers possible through tomorrow. The cloud cover will keep things a bit cool with highs lingering in the 50’s, but it will also limit are radiational cooling at night so we will not see frost conditions the next few days. By Saturday we will see the system to our south depart and high pressure briefly regain control of our weather with dry and sunny weather returning. Again this will be brief as another low pressure system looks to spread more showers into the region overnight into Sunday. Looking beyond this period, it continues to appear that we will have a stretch of unsettled and cool weather into next week. A blocking pattern will keep us in an active pattern with multiple opportunities for much needed rainfall. We will have more on next weeks pattern later this week.
Wildfire update: latest info had the fire about 40% contained with near 2000 acres burned. The fire was still smoldering with hot spots throughout the region. It is still an active wildfire for that reason. The multiple chances for rain in the forecast could possibly bring major relief to the situation by the end of the week and certainly into next week as well.
On another note, we also wanted to take a moment to say thank you! We reached an impressive milestone this week. HVW.Com had it’s Ten Millionth page view!!! Impressive to say the least! Thank You for all of your support!
