Hold on to your hat! It is a windy day across the region with northwesterly winds rolling at about 15-25 mph and gusts up to 40 mph! This will continue through the day with some clouds and sunshine in the mix. Temperatures today will top out in the upper 50s to low 60s across the area (50s north and 60s south). Winds will continue into the evening and overnight hours as well as temperatures fall to around 40 degree under clear skies. Tomorrow morning could be a little on the breezy side as well but winds expected to calm during the afternoon hours. Temperatures on Thursday with sunshine will move into the mid to upper 60s! We are looking at 70s on Friday with partly cloudy skies. A chance of rain showers through the region on Friday but clearing and drying out by Saturday. Breezy winds return on Saturday but so do temperatures in the 70s and sunshine. Sunshine continues on Sunday but much cooler conditions, only topping out in the lower to mid 60s. The beginning of the next work week features rain and looks to be in a pretty unsettled pattern with rain chances and cooler temperatures.

Daily Eye Wonder Weather photos and images
One might say this was a bell weather day for the Sierra Nevada mountains. In January, just as the Sun was setting above the district of Albayzín in Grenada, Spain, a huge cloud appeared as a bell capping the Veleta peak. Such a Cap cloud is formed by air forced upwards by a mountain peak, with the air then cooling, saturating with moisture, and finally having its molecular water condense into cloud droplets. Such a bell-shaped cloud structure is unusual as air typically moves horizontally, making most clouds nearly flat across at the bottom. Vertical waves can also give additional lenticular cloud layers, as also seen above. Given the fleeting extent of the great cloud coupled with momentarily excellent sunset coloring, one might considered this also a bellwether day for an accomplished photographer.
