WEATHER BLOG: Warmer Temps Make For Pleasant Weekend
We topped out at 63 degrees today. That is the first day this month that our high went above average. In fact, this was the first time in 2 weeks our high was above average. If you like the warmth, make plans for tomorrow because temperatures are going even higher.
A very large and powerful storm out to our west is pumping this warmth up ahead of it. The clouds you saw today were the warm front part of that storm, while the cold front is producing severe weather across the Plains today. There is also much colder air behind the front, bringing snow to the Rockies and Sierra.
We will stay on the warm side of this storm Sunday and Monday. Highs will be in the upper 60s tomorrow and then the mid 60s again on Monday. There will be some morning clouds and fog tomorrow that will give way to sunshine, but clouds will be on the increase again Monday as the storm gets closer.
This storm will weaken significantly before it gets here, but will bring some rain and maybe a few thunderstorms with it Tuesday. It will keep on moving, though, getting out of here Wednesday. We will get another dose of cool air behind it. Highs will be back down in the low 50s for the second half of the week.
