Rest of the work week: One more great weather day, then showers move in

/ May 10, 2022 at 9:32 PM

We’ve got one more really good weather day in store for Wednesday before low pressure drifts westward toward the coast, bringing in periods of showers and thunderstorms beginning Thursday afternoon and evening into Friday, leaving some scattered shower activity around for Saturday as well. We could definitely use the rain, and it doesn’t look like there will be any severe weather coming along for the ride, either — a win-win situation considering our worsening drought situation. (We could still see a few thunderstorms, though, and lightning makes every thunderstorm dangerous.)

Temperatures will remain below normal through Friday given continued northward winds and then rain-cooled air, especially as we get into Friday. Peeking ahead toward the weekend, though, we will begin to see temperatures rebound into the mid-to-upper 80s as winds go more southerly, with the 90s returning to the picture on Monday. Savor the cooler weather while we’ve got it, because we’ve got fewer and fewer days like this ahead until the fall.
