February 26 – The stormy day yesterday got everyones attention. I am still sorting through some of the best photos and will share them later. This morning we have a distinct taste of realty with temperatures that dropped to around freezing and will struggle to get back to the mid 40s later today. That is where we should be in late February. But, we have another warm up on the way. Much like the prior one and what I have mentioned countless times, we tend to end up warmer than first thought. So, yes! We could see the 70s again. Then a series of storms could bring some snow to our region. Don’t get too excited for stickage yet, but there is a chance.
First the pattern change:
Notice the brief warm up followed but a shift of the jet stream The warm ridge will build back for California as we get into a colder and more stormy pattern.
