A Real Taste of Spring!
We are starting off chilly with temperature into the mid 30s this morning... this is mainly due to clear skies and light winds. These are the perfect conditions for what we call "radiational cooling". Without clouds or wind, any "heat of the day" is able to escape rapidly back into the atmosphere. When we have clouds, they help to hold the "heat" in. HERE is a good explanation of what is going on.
BUT the lack of clouds plays in our favor this afternoon! With sunshine and southwest winds increasing... our temperatures are going to soar into the 70s! We will be well above our average high of 59 degrees.
Tuesday looks warm, too, with a 70s repeat... it also looks windy! Winds will continue out of the southwest, gusting to 30 mph!
Tuesday night a storm will be approaching us, bringing a *slight* chance of showers and thunderstorms overnight into Wednesday morning. Not a whole lot of moisture here... so we'll see. But we're still seeing the chance of rain for Thursday!
Enjoy the great weather ahead!

Is it going to get cold again, or is spring finally here for good! Thanks, love watching you guys!
We will likely have another freeze or two, but the trend is up!
