stunning sunshine... (am.01.mar.13)>

We have a stunningly beautiful sunny morning to start the month of March.  My overnight low occurred around midnight -- 45.5F (7.5C) -- but it's already up to 50.4F  (10.2C) as of 7:45am.  Humidity is 40%.

Things are still looking very positive with regard to our warming trend during the first few days of this new month.  The weather pattern is quiet, with a weak west-northwesterly flow aloft and warming underway throughout all layers of the atmosphere.  I'm a bit paranoid about afternoon cloudiness developing here along the front slopes of the mountains, as it's one of those things that is really hard to predict until it starts happening... but we'll at least have a sunny first half of the day.

During the last half of February our temps were below normal on all but just a couple of days, so it's going to be nice to warm up to where we should be for this stage of the early spring season.  It still looks like we're in line for a stretch of pleasantly mild days.

I've decided to move the 5-day forecast to a permanent tab at the top of the page -- CURRENT FORECAST -- where it's easier for me to keep it updated, and so that you don't have to scroll and click around looking for it.!
