Today's Weather: Sunny And Mild

The good news is today is going to be an absolutely beautiful day with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the low to middle 60s. The bad news is today is probably the nicest day of the week. With that said, there is going to be some dry weather tomorrow and again toward the end of the week, but I don't see anything quite as warm or as sunny as today as the week goes on.

High pressure builds and brings us all the sunshine. The air is very dry and fire danger is elevated. This is the time of year where we can see brush fires because the new growth hasn't arrived on most of the plant material, and last year's leaves and twigs are quite dry.

Tomorrow will be another mild day, with temperatures getting into the lower and middle 60s. A fast-moving system will increase the cloud cover tomorrow and bring with it some showers tomorrow night and the first part of Wednesday. The showers end later Wednesday and then there's a break in the action at night before the next storm arrives on Thursday.

As you plan out your week, Wednesday and Thursday are definitely the least favorable days. Friday it's back to drier weather, but it's going to be cool. We'll have to watch to see if another storm system affects us later next weekend.
