With the weather pendulum swinging back once again to the chilly side, will an expected warmup at midweek finally put an end to these seasonal gyrations?
The calendar may show that summer is about to begin, but the chill in the air this Saturday morning says otherwise! With temperatures in the 40s and feeling even colder as winds gust to 30 mph, heavy jackets and gloves are more appropriate than swim trunks and flip flops. With chilly northwesterly winds and high pressure in place, look for partly to mostly sunny skies today but highs only in the upper 60s. The gusty winds will make it feel even cooler.
But while it may be a chilly start, this Memorial day weekend will get progressively better and more comfortable. While the winds will be slow to abate - and there are freeze and frost warnings out for the far west tonight - sunshine will dominate through Monday and temperatures will gradually warm. Highs near 70 on Sunday will improve to the mid 70s by Monday. Humidity levels will be low throughout the period. Pool and ocean water readings in the 50s and 60s should keep all but the most intrepid swimmers on shore this weekend. But the bracing water - and air - will start to warm this coming week with highs near 90 and sticky humidity levels back by midweek. So it will feel like Memorial Day should, just a few day late! Enjoy your weekend.
