PM Update: Clouds Refuse to Budge; Rain Coming
Showers, some thunderstorms and gusty winds on Friday
Anyone (myself included) hoping for sun today has been disappointed by the continuation of clouds, areas of fog and some drizzle. Need to blame something? Look to the ocean and its cool air mass blowing in on a northeast wind. And that same air mass has helped hold temperatures in the 50s today once again. Clouds will persist through sunset along with some areas of mist or light showers.
Tonight: Light showers, a little fog and areas of mist are possible early before more concentrated batches of showers arrive around or after midnight. A continued flow off the ocean will keep temperatures from doing much. Lows should drop to between 50 and 55 most places.
Tomorrow (Friday): Periods of showers appear likely throughout much of Friday as a strong storm system passes to our west. Despite showers and clouds, we should get up into the low-or-mid 60s thanks to a south wind. When the associated cold front moves through in the afternoon or evening, some thunderstorms with gusty winds and hail will be possible. Behind the front, winds will pick up from the west, gusting to 35 mph or higher into early Saturday.

Drought Update: Despite some much-needed rain over the last week, today's status update keeps the area under moderate drought conditions. Rain that falls tonight and tomorrow will help a bit, but we still will need several more inches of surplus rains to breathe easier as we head toward summer.
