Back to Sun

Of course it happens this way:  Yesterday the low clouds wouldn’t go away, but this morning they were already mostly gone at sunrise.  I can’t win!  Temps made it into the lower 70s today across the metro area as a result.

With all models forecasting several degrees of atmospheric warming tomorrow, we should easily hit 75-76.  I notice ETA MOS at 00z has 78 for tomorrow.  Could happen, but I hate to get too wild and crazy.  In my younger days at a local TV station I would have gone for 78 or so, but I’m getting old & conservative (weatherwise) lately.

Massive marine push + weakening cold front Saturday keeps us in clouds through midafternoon with a few sprinkles or a shower.  MUCH cooler the big story then.  But by Sunday we’re back to northerly low-level flow, which means quite a bit more sun.

Long range models have either a flat or strong ridge over us starting Tuesday and continuing through Thursday next week.  We could anywhere from 74-86 depending on which model you believe, so I’ll stick with 76.  No good chance for widespread rain until later next week.

    My high was 81.2, for this time of year thats a little warm but come summer time I will really enjoy it.

    I hit 81.7F, faily warm, not too bad but I don’t really like the 80s. I just like 65-72 and nothing warmer :).

  3. Derek Hodges says:

    I have 81.0 just barely at my house. So I guess we were pretty close, only a couple degrees away.

    Do we live in the arctic? the record is 83-84 here and I got right about as close you can get to 80 without actually getting there. Warm, but almost perfect for me tempwise.

  5. Derek Hodges says:

    80.6 now. Probably 81 for a high

  6. Derek Hodges says:

    I got 80.5 in a optimal location. Alex I doubt its quite that warm but is way nice out there.

  8. alex says:

  9. Derek Hodges says:

    78.7!! Man are we gonna hit 85 or something!! lol

  10. Derek Hodges says:

    wow, 77.4 and still going up. Wonder if we break the record today..?

  11. Derek Hodges says:

    hmm 76.3 and rising quickly.

  12. Derek Hodges says:

    75.8 here. 80 seems likely now at my house. How about other places?

  13. Derek Hodges says:

    hmm, today may be our first 80 afterall. I don’t trust this yet but found it interesting, check out the 88

    lately, (and even this winter) i have noticed more that the end of the forecast peiod temps fluctuate a ton. everyone predicts these big swings in temps, and then it moderates the closer we get. should we be expecting this for the big warmup at the end of next week? i mean, kgw says 82 at the end of next week. come next wednesday will they be saying 70 like this week?
    it makes it hard to plan anything when this is happening. anyone else getting frustrated by this? at least today has been bumped back up to what was predicted earlier this week

  15. Derek Hodges says:

    Go for the 80!! lol Its all right, you do a great job Mark. Unlike others at least you admit the chance is there.
