Sesame Street says it best! Sunny skies and westerly winds have brought warmer air into the Valley.

High pressure is our best friend Monday and Tuesday. We'll see nothing but sunny skies and temperatures closing in on the 60 degree mark. Be sure to enjoy the sunshine the next 2 days, as the weather looks unsettled from Wednesday through the weekend.

The southern areas of the US have warmed significantly over the past few days. More warm air will to move towards the Valley once southerly winds begin Tuesday, keeping our area warm throughout the rainy period.

Low pressure will slowly approach us Wednesday and make little progress eastward through Friday. While cloud cover will blanket the region the second half of the week, the rainfall will not be consistent throughout the 3 day period. We'll have a period of heavy rain from Thursday afternoon through Friday morning with more rain likely Saturday morning and once again Sunday morning. Low pressure moves across the area and hangs along the coast through Monday, keeping cloud cover in the Valley.

The good news is that most of the snow has gradually melted over the past few weeks, therefore the flooding possibilities are lessened - somewhat. There are a lot of leftover 'piles' of snow throughout the Valley. With temperatures expected to remain in the upper 50's and lower 60's along with rain, areas that are prone to minor flooding may need to monitor the weather a little closer.

Of course, we'll keep you updated on the latest information concerning flood watches and/or warnings on-air and online.
