PM Update: Sunny Wednesday warm-up
Chilly winds from the northwest held temperatures below average for the first time in six days today. Mid-to-upper 40s were all the sun amidst clear March skies (nice satellite image) could muster on its incipient day. But after a clear and a cold night, the absence of north winds helps temps bounce back into above average territory tomorrow.
Through Tonight: Although the cool flow of air from the north ceases, clear skies and calm winds allow the sun's daytime energy to radiate back into space. And so we have a seasonably chilly night. Lows drop from the mid-20s in the colder suburbs to the low 30s downtown.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Sunshine is plentiful. Flow from the south and then from the west promotes mild afternoon temps, reaching around 60 or even the low 60s for highs. In the evening, a cold front comes through, setting the stage for a cold Wednesday night and Thursday.
Weather insurance company receives major Google investment:
The Wall Street Journal reports WeatherBill, a company which provides "total weather insurance" for farming, travel, and other purposes, has received $42 billion in venture capital from Google ventures, Khosla Ventures and several other investors. Portfolio.com indicates WeatherBill will use the funding, in part, to hire more climatologists, computer engineers, and sales force personnel to expand its agricultural business overseas.
