What a beautiful Sunday!! We’ll follow the afternoon up with a quiet night. We’ll see a few passing clouds overnight, but in general skies will stay mainly clear. As temps dip into the 40s for lows, some patchy dense fog may develop like it did early Sunday.
Any fog should lift by around 9 a.m. Monday. Look for a quick warm-up on this Presidents’ Day with mostly sunny skies early. More clouds should roll in for the afternoon with highs pushing into the mid 70s. We’ll stay dry Monday, but scattered showers are possible as we head into Tuesday.
With the additional cloud cover overnight, lows should hold in the 50s. A weak weather disturbance moves along the Gulf coast Tue/Wed. A few showers are possible here in the Valley, but the t-storm potential looks rather limited. I certainly wouldn’t characterize any day this week as a wash-out. Despite the cloud cover, temperatures will continue to run well above average. Tuesday should be one of the “cooler” days this week with highs closer to 70°. We’ll be into the low/mid 70s Wednesday, and some locations may approach 80° for highs on Thursday!
Again, isolated showers will be possible. A cold front should approach late in the week. When the front gets here Friday, our rain chances will go up slightly versus earlier in the week. A few t-storms cannot be ruled out either.
Look for cooler conditions behind this system for the weekend with temps closer to average for this time of year.
Highs should be near 60° with lows in the upper 30s/lower 40s. Any rain should be gone by Saturday morning with mostly sunny skies expected for the rest of the weekend.
