Today's Weather: A Dry Interlude

We finally have a sunny day on tap. Temperatures are going to get into the mid-50s over much of the area, with the exception of the immediate coast. Water temperatures will remain chilly for the next few months, so anytime we see a wind with an easterly component, temperatures will be cooler along the coastline.

That's what we had Tuesday, when the projected high temperatures went bust and stayed in the forties and inland areas got into the 50s. I think we'll see a similar pattern Wednesday.

Another storm system approaches Thursday, which will bring additional rainfall. There could be some showers in the middle of the afternoon Thursday, but I think the steadiest and heaviest rain should hold off to the evening. The morning will definitely be the driest and the best time to get out.

The system continues to sweep Eastward on Friday. I'm expecting additional rainfall, some heavier downpours and the potential for strong gusty winds along the south coast.

There will be a some lingering cloudiness on Saturday, and there's the risk of a shower, especially in the morning. Temperatures will be mild, so if you can dodge the rain drops it'll be a good time to get outside.

Sunday features more in the way of sunshine and perhaps a 70 degree day. We didn't see anything that mild in April, but May should bring a change in that department.
