Major pattern shift spells big warm up this week

Weather

The Weather Authority

Overnight, skies will be partly cloudy to occasionally cloudy with lows in the upper 50s to near 60.

On Monday, we begin our warming trend which will only increase as we head through the rest of the week into the weekend.

There is a slight chance for a few spot showers Monday afternoon (20%) and a few more on Tuesday (30%) but both days are certainly no wash-out.

Then as the general upper air pattern shifts from the cool trough of low pressure we had for the first half of May (which lends to cool temperatures), to a ridge of high pressure (just the opposite), temps could reach the upper 80s by the end of the week and around 90 by next weekend.

That’s right, we said it, 90. That’s not too unusual, though, for the later part of May, as the average day to reach 90 is around May 27th.
