PM Update: More cold, remaining mostly dry
A few flurries late Saturday?
The cold, dry weather pattern is becoming a bit of a broken record, although we do have a shot at some precipitation in the extended range. Highs reached the mid-to-upper 30s today under mostly sunny skies after a "surprise" morning dusting of snow in the western suburbs. Chilly weather continues tomorrow with a chance of some conversational snow flurries late in the day.
Tomorrow (Saturday): For most of the day, we'll have a mix of clouds and sun. Light winds from the south help temperatures near or just barely cross the 40 degree threshold for highs. Late in the afternoon and toward evening, a cold front approaches which increases clouds and could bring a few snow flurries, mainly in the north and west suburbs. No accumulation expected.
It could happen tomorrow...: The U.S. Geological Survey announced they have developed a scenario for planning purposes in which a storm dumps 10 feet of rain and results in more than $300 billion in damage in California. The ARkstorm scenario, according to USGS "combines prehistoric geologic flood history in California with modern flood mapping and climate-change projections to produce a hypothetical, but plausible, scenario aimed at preparing the emergency response community for this type of hazard."
