Looks nice out today, but feels cooler. A cold front crossed our area last evening and as high pressure pushes in from the west, it will make for a windy Wednesday.
The Northwesterly flow will draw in a cooler air mass and temperatures will be about 10 degrees down from Tuesday. In addition, the air is drier and with little measurable rain from yesterday's showers, the region is under a Red Flag Warning today. That means fires would spread quickly today due to dry fuels, low dew points and gusty winds, so it is advised to avoid outdoor burning and extinguish those cigarettes completely. By tomorrow, we will start to warm up a little more to near seasonal conditions and the 70s return with southerly winds for Friday, but showers will be possible in the afternoon.

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.
