Today will be one that will be hard to beat. It will be warm and sunny with low humidity. It just doesn't get better than that. There is a slight chance that a thunderstorm could brew this afternoon but that is minimal. I've been procrastinating about getting my flowers planted, and today will be a great day for that. We had a few rain showers yesterday but most of the day was dry. There was 0.06" in my rain gauge.

Wednesday was mostly cloudy, muggy, with some early sun, but with showers coming through the area in the early-mid afternoon the clouds thickened and the temps dropped from the mid 80s to the low-mid 70s. Around 1530 I did get a light shower for a few minutes, but most of the action was to my N and W, and moved off to the NE of me quickly. Temps have dropped off a bit more tonight in the evening dampness, and now are in the mid 60s, along with the dew point. Low temps at Thursday sunrise will probably still be in the mid 60s. Thursday just a 30 POP for showers/storms, partly cloudy, warm and humid with highs in the upper 80s,lows around 70 with a 50 POP for showers/storms Thursday night. Friday and Saturday partly cloudy,warm and humid with high temps in the mid-upper 80s and lows around 70, 30 POP for showers/storms. On Sunday shower/storm chances increase to a 60 POP, cloudy with numerous…Continue
Weaker onshore pressure gradients and a shallower marine layer will allow for quicker clearing along the coast and valleys today. High temperatures will be 3-5 degrees warmer over most locations with valley high temperatures close to 80 degrees. Mountain locations will be in the 60s. Yesterday, only a handful of thunderstorms were seen in the high Sierra with around 30 lightning discharges near the Crest. Expect similar numbers today and Thursday. Winds in the deserts should be weaker than the past few days, but the Antelope Valley and Banning Pass may still see some gusts to 25 m
