Today is the last full day of Spring. That means it will also be the longest day of the year. Sunrise (as you can see on the right of the page) was at 4:31AM and sunset will be at 10:21PM tonight. Summer solstice is officially at 3:51AM PDT Saturday June 21.

As if to send off spring just right yesterday we got a pretty good downpour around 8PM followed by a spectacular rainbow!

We might see more of those rainbows this afternoon as well but come summer, that is Saturday, the models are looking dry and pleasant. Sunday should be particularly nice.

Have a great weekend!
