A weak wave from the north moves mostly east of our area tonight through tomorrow morning, and though it may bring some clouds overnight and into Tuesday morning, the northerly push keeps the weather associated with the old Great Basin storm to our south for another cool spring day with mostly sunny skies by Tuesday afternoon.
The warm-up arrives in earnest for Wednesday and Thursday with a welcome dose of above average temperatures for a change, though it now appears there will be a threat of afternoon and possibly evening storms by later Thursday as yet another large storm looks to cross the coast then.
Energy ejected over our area will bring breezy southwest winds, moisture and lift that will fuel the Thursday afternoon storms. The new storm is then forecast to move eastward, possibly first bringing a dry slot of air over the area for part of Friday before another round of afternoon storms, and then inclement weather to our area for Mother’s Day weekend. There is a fair bit of uncertainty as to the storms track and that will determine how wet the weekend will be.
