March 15, 2010 - Ready For Some Sun?

Clouds will slowly move out of the region Tuesday, leading the way for sunshine and warmer air. But how long will it last - read about it in today's blog!

I know we're all very sick and tired of the clouds, rain, wind driven drizzle (my favorite), etc - but we'll start to see the light! Low pressure continues to move further off the coast Monday afternoon. A few showers are still possible because of wrap around precipitation, but we'll be mostly dry.

Clouds linger into our Tuesday with temperatures staying fairly close to Monday's highs, right around 50 degrees. As high pressure builds to the west, drier air will make it into the Valley from north to south. Therefore some sunshine is likely in the Northern Valley and Highlands by Tuesday afternoon.

Any remaining cloud cover will move out of the Valley Tuesday night, leaving us with clear skies Wednesday through the first half of our weekend. Friday and Saturday look like the best days of the week with highs in the upper 60's and sunshine. We can expect our next storm system by Sunday, bringing much cooler air back to the Valley and dropping our high temperatures substantially from the end of this week.

In conclusion - enjoy Wednesday through Saturday!

Also, remember the statewide tornado drill is March 16. I know many schools and businesses are taking part in the drill, but having a plan at home is important too! Severe weather season will be underway in the Valley before we know it.
