TODAY'S FORECAST

WARMEST DAY OF THE YEAR...SO FAR! 61°F 6:30AM Hey hey Giovanni here. High pressure will max out today, bringing us the warmest day of the year.. so far. Today's temperatures may reach the low 80s with overnight lows in the mid 50s. We will continue warm through mid week, but a gradual cooling trend is expected as several weakening systems approach the northern coast bringing us partly cloudy skies at times, but dry weather through early next week. The snow pack has begun to melt. It's going to take longer than most years, meaning our rivers will remain off limits for most as the cold fast waters won't be safe for swimming.

The long range forecast is drying out fast with a nice warm up. It doesn't look like we will getting too hot too early. May is a super tricky month and I bet we see one or two days of showery weather before the summer heat arrives.
