A Temporary Dry Spell

April 29, 2009

A brief post tonight, because once again I got busy with a few other projects.  Plus, there isn't too much to talk about.

1.  2 nice days on the way with much warmer temps.  Decent offshore flow kicks in tomorrow, which should give us a nice 10 degree temperature jump.  Then  the offshore flow looks very strong on Friday.  I see the WRF-GFS has 45 kt easterly wind late Friday evening.  That's unusually strong for May, due to the combo of high pressure to the east and the approaching low to the southwest. 

2.  Saturday's forecast is the only real messy part.  Still some disagreement on how much rain falls and when it starts.  Our 00z RPM only has .02" by 5pm on Saturday.  So it may just be a mostly cloudy day with a few sprinkles.

3.  Early May Soaking:  It sure looks wet early next week.  The GFS keeps showing a very wet west/southwest flow from Sunday through the middle of the week.
