Happy Saturday! Even though our surface weather is dominated by high pressure the jet stream has found itself right on top of us which is drawing in moisture from the Pacific Ocean. This moisture will result in a fair amount of cloud cover through the day and even a few isolated showers. The chance of rain will only be around 20%, but a few rain drops, especially through the afternoon, cannot be ruled out.
Meanwhile, temperatures will be much warmer than they have been for the last few days. High temperatures this afternoon will be in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees. Finally, back to normal. The normal high temperatures for mid January is 70°.
The feature in the jet stream bringing the added cloud cover will begin to clear out overnight Saturday into Sunday morning. The cloud cover will gradually clear out and give way to mostly sunny skies for the majority of Sunday. High temperatures as s result of the increased sunshine will be in the upper 60s.
Have a great weekend!
