PM Update: Cool breeze now, but warmer tomorrow
Pleasant Wed. and Thurs. before next rain chance
Take a quick step outside and you will be reminded that we are still not too far removed from the cold season. Highs rising to the low-and-mid 50s along with a gusty wind from the northwest created a rather chilly day, especially after all the recent warmth. For the most part, rain showers have stayed to the west and to the east of the area, but a few are possible into the evening.
Through Tonight: After a risk of a passing shower the rest of the afternoon into early evening, skies should start clearing in earnest after sunset, leaving us mostly clear by morning. Lows range from near 40 to the mid-40s. Winds continue to gust from the northwest up to 25 or 30 mph.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Sun returns tomorrow and temperatures respond by rising back above average. Afternoon highs in the mid-60s should do it for just about everyone. The only down-side (depending on perspective) will be continued northwest winds gusting to around 25-30 mph and subsiding late.
Cherry Blossom forecast: The National Park Service has revised its peak bloom estimate. The harsh winter was apparently no match for our recent warm stretch which should help the peak -- 70 percent of flowers open -- occur April 1-4. The previous forecast was for peak bloom April 3-8.
