PM Update: Clear sailing through Thursday

We’ve entered a quiet period for the weather with mainly sunny days and clear, cold nights. Partial cloudiness dotted the afternoon skies, but we still climbed to near 60. Skies clear out tonight and sunshine dominates Wednesday and likely Thursday as well.

Through Tonight: Clear skies and light winds provide for ideal radiational cooling. That means the colder suburbs drop to a frosty 30, whereas it’s closer to 40 downtown and along the western shores of the Bay.

Wednesday: We may be hard pressed to find a cloud with high pressure right overhead. Have a jacket, and maybe even gloves for the morning commute. But it warms nicely into the afternoon, with highs a few degrees warmer than today, reaching the low 60s.

Denver, Co. snow, round 2: Just a week after digging out from 3-6” of snow, the mile high city faces a possible repeat performance. A winter storm warning is in effect for tonight and tomorrow with 5-10” of snow expected along with gusty winds of up to 15-25 mph.
