Weather roundup for this week

It's been a while since I've posted, so it's probably a good idea to highlight the week's weather events.

Past few days
Rainy, cloudy weather hung around throughout the weekend and early in the week. With the ground saturated, very little evaporation occurring due to the clouds, and warmer temperatures arriving, we ended up with dense fog Tuesday morning that lowered visibilities to near zero in many locales. The fog held temperatures back from reaching their full potential yesterday, but we still ended up with highs near 70.

Today
Without the foggy start in most places, sunny skies and southerly wind should help temps warm rapidly from morning lows in the 40s into the mid 70s by late afternoon. The later sunset time will help keep the the evening very pleasant as well.

Thursday and beyond...
A cold front will move through very early tomorrow, bringing a slight chance of rain and mostly cloudy skies for Thursday. Temperatures will respond appropriately as highs top out in the lower to mid 60s. Skies will clear Thursday night and dry conditions will persist into early next week. Highs will climb slowly from the 60s into the lower 70s by early next week as well. The next chance of rain after Thursday will be next Tuesday/Wednesday.

Enjoy a great Spring Break week and upcoming weekend!
