warming trend... (pm.1.feb.11)

what a gorgeous day... skies were mostly sunny, with the afternoon temp at the wxgeek office topping out at 57F (14C).  it looks like our warming trend will continue for the next few days, with only a few patches of high clouds to dim the sun from time to time.

this fair weather pattern will gradually be replaced by increasing cloudiness and a better chance of a few showers as we approach the weekend, however.  a slow-moving storm system is crossing the persian gulf this afternoon, but is expected to weaken as it moves in our direction.  it doesn't look like a big rain/snow-maker, but it may play spoiler... especially on saturday into sunday.

TUESDAY NIGHT: partly cloudy skies.  rather mild.
low: 8C (46F)

WEDNESDAY: mostly sunny with pleasantly mild temps.
high: 14C (58F)

THURSDAY: increasing clouds, with a slight chance of a brief rain shower late in the day.
high: 14C (58F)

SATURDAY: mostly cloudy with some scattered rain showers in the area.
high: 12C (54F)

SUNDAY: mostly cloudy skies.  cooler, with a chance of a few showers.
