Today's Weather: One More Sunny Day

Thursday brings another morning with temperatures in the 30s, and frost and freeze conditions over central and western areas. I'm fairly confident this is the last morning we'll have to deal with this nonsense. That doesn't mean it's going to be sunny and in the 80s the rest of the spring, but I think we're done with the risk of frost.

Expect a glorious day; probably the pick of the next several. Temperatures in the afternoon will near 70 degrees, and, with the strong May sunshine, it will feel very warm. Remember, the sun is very intense right now, so you'll need to use sunscreen if you're out for long.

Overnight, a warm front approaches the region a cold front swings through on Friday. Each of these systems will bring a few showers starting very late at night and continuing through the day Friday and into Friday night. The showers could linger pre-dawn Saturday, but I think that we will clear out, making for a nice start to the weekend. The next weather system is moving fairly slowly, so we'll probably eke out Sunday with a nice day.

Temperatures will be seasonably mild over the weekend, generally staying in the mid-60s, though winds will keep it cooler along the coast.

A fairly complicated and slow-moving storm system will approach the area early next week, bringing several days of showers. These types of patterns are notorious for being poorly forecast three or four days in advance, so don't hang your hat on this forecast just yet. It could change.
