rebounding already... (pm.28.nov.15)>

Saturday's stats:

Low temp: 50.0F (10.0C)
High temp: 59.1F (15.1C)
Rainfall for today: none
Rainfall for November: 0.91" (2.3cm)

There's hardly any cloudiness to be found out there this evening, but we are still dealing with a light haze.  Today's sky condition consisted of almost equal parts sun, clouds and haze, as temperatures rebounded much more aggressively than I had expected.  My thermometer in the upper part of town went just above 15ºC, which was about one degree celsius (or two degrees fahrenheit) warmer than anticipated.  No complaints!

The shot of cooler air on Thursday night through Friday evening delivered the coldest temps of this new winter season, but already warming throughout most layers of the atmosphere is kicking in, allowing us to quickly jump back a little bit above normal for the very tail end of November.  Just yesterday I mentioned that we might be finished with 60ºF (16ºC) temps for this season and year, but already I think I'll have to take that back, as we could be flirting with those numbers both tomorrow (Sun) and Monday.  Another very brief shot of cooler air is expected during the mid-week period, but extended range models are showing a high pressure ridge building in by the end of the week -- and that pattern hints at some very mild temps compared to normal for early December.

Although we'll have to deal with occasional clouds and haze, there should still be a good amount of sun during the next several days or more... with no significant storms systems and very little chance of measurable rainfall.
