Humble Pie. That is what yesterday was. I mean I sent a brief update dealing with Sat night’s weather, but thought the forecast was in great shape for yesterday: Mid-morning it was mostly cloudy. Some showers were around, and temps were in the 60's. Some breaks were in the clouds to our SW but not that big. Forecast looked good. Well, it was waaaay oooffff.
I don’t think too many saw the showers drying up completely, skies clearing and temps surging toward 80 degrees. Like I said, humble pie. Forecasting can be tough. Even from a few hours out. But time to move on to new challenges.
Pattern will present us with a chilly to cold week ahead. Lots of clouds through Mon (some sun on Sunday but not a ton), then sunny Tue/Wed and then lots of clouds Thu/Fri/Sat. Potent yet very compact low moving though tonight, another low approaching Mon bringing some rain, then very cold high pressure gives us sunshine, followed by what looks to be a very wet and stormy few days Thu-Sat.
I mentioned earlier about the early season warmth and tender vegetation/buds coming out too early. Well this coming cold has three nights of potential danger for growers.
Hint: April’s start will be chilly, but I doubt it lasts. Hasn’t all winter and early spring, so I bet it ends warm, possible very warm.
