More warm, dry weather

Simon Smith

Now that pollen season has officially arrived, what better way to celebrate all that yellow dust than by having more sunny, warm and breezy weather conditions.

For today we will see sunny skies, warm conditions and afternoon southwest winds in the 10 to 20 mph range.

Highs will rise into the mid to upper 70s with lows tonight dropping back into the 40s or upper 30s in the normally cold spots.

With high pressure remaining to our south and east, and low pressure remaining anchored off the Washington coast, our dry southwest flow will continue this week and cause winds to become stronger during the afternoon and evening hours.

While the weather may be good for sailing, please be extremely careful with fire, as the fuels will continue to dry out and no precipitation is in sight for the foreseeable future.
