First half of Saturday warm, then change arrives
by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist
Tricky forecast for Saturday: morning offshore winds will let temperatures peak early, likely into the upper 60s and mid 70s again however winds turn back onshore in the afternoon bringing clouds and cooler temperatures.
Sunday looks dramatically cooler with highs in the 60s for most. Monday and Tuesday temperatures will only peak in the lower 60s with partly cloudy skies, no rain is anticipated with the cold front pushing thru Sunday.
However a stronger front Wednesday will likely produce some showers however they will not amount to much, likely less than .20″ Small shower chances again Thursday and Friday but again only light.
As we have detailed numerous times recently, the rain shortage is 5-6.5″ and there is little reason for optimism we’d catch up in March at least based on the pattern computer models are producing through mid-month. Statistically rain potential drops dramatically as Pacific high pressure comes to dominate weather in April through summer.
