PM Update: Spectacular weather keeps on coming

Awesome. Is that enough description for today? Well, if you want more let’s talk about all the clear skies and temperatures in the mid-70s most spots this afternoon. Even better news is that more is to come over the next week. I’m going to go ahead and say we deserve it after the last few weeks, so enjoy!

Through Tonight: It’s mostly clear and pretty darn pleasant this evening. Temperatures do drop off pretty quickly as the sun sets, but nothing to worry about too much. Lows ultimately reach the low-40s in the cooler suburbs to near 50 downtown.

Tomorrow (Thursday): Want some more awesome? You’ve got it! Mostly sunny skies greet us again as temperatures rise into the upper 60s or near 70 across the region. Winds should be rather light out of the north.

Western U.S. storm: A series of winter events continue to impact particularly the Sierra Nevada of California, but also into the Rockies today. As of this morning, places around Tahoe (see video) had picked up as much as 6” of snow. At Mammoth Mountain in the central Sierra, up to and past 1’ of snow has fallen already with some more to come. Rain also fell across many of the lower elevations in the state, including as much as 1.77” at Redding. Multimedia: Compilation of snow images/video

Pollen update: Tree, grass and weed pollen is LOW. Mold spores remain in the HIGH range at 19,489 spores/cubic meter of air.
