Just under 3 hours to go! At 9:57AM PDT it will officially be spring!

It’s not going to feel too springlike this morning until the sun can come out and warm us up a bit. A ridge of high pressure is building in that is going to give us these chilly mornings for a few days but we should have a chance at breaking into the sun by late morning or early afternoon. As long as the sun breaks out we should get into the 9-11°C range.

This high pressure is going to deflect most of the rain (or possible flurries) away that was going to come Saturday evening so I don’t expect much rain at all until next week.

And speaking of next week, we could have temperatures as high as 15°C by Monday afternoon!

Bring it on! 🙂
