the right combo... (pm.06.mar.13)>

Wednesday's stats:

Early morning low temp: 54.3F (12.4C)
Afternoon high temp: 68.4F (20.2C)
Rainfall: none

Afternoon cloudiness over the mountains has already dissipated before sunset this evening, leaving us with mostly clear skies to end the day.  Our early spring sunshine helped boost the high temp at my location on Tushita Road up to its new high of 2013.

A quiet and unseasonably mild weather scenario continues to prevail across our part of the world, thanks to a general area of high pressure again poking in from the southwest.  The moisture content of the air is quite limited and the atmosphere fairly stable -- and that combination should continue until perhaps the latter half of the weekend.  We may not get a lot of additional warming out of this air mass, but still maybe enough to get us to 70F (21.1C) during the next couple of days.

An upper-level disturbance moving in our direction may start to affect us late Saturday or Saturday night with a chance of a shower or a thundershower, which will last into Sunday.  With each run of the computer model data I am less convinced that we're going to get much out of this system -- but it is nevertheless something to watch since the month of March has been totally rainless so far.
