The last of the scattered showers?

Today is almost identical to yesterday-- with another round of scattered showers spotting up in the afternoon. Can we finally turn the corner for a nice finish to the week? I think so...

Good Wednesday to one and all.

When thinking about the weather today, I just have that kids song stuck in my head... "buuut, the cat came back, the very next day..." It's true, no matter how anything progresses in the atmosphere, it always seems to do so in a way that gets the same scattered showers back into town. The Muppets did a rendition of this I remember:

So with that, the persistent weather pattern continues for one more day. Hopefully this is one last rotation around the back-side of the weakened area of low pressure. Here's what HPC shows for the area:

So today we have more scattered showers here and there today, and then tomorrow it should be just confined to the mountains. Again, not a whole lot of moisture here, but it can be a temporary annoyance. I wouldn't think these would change many plans (like yesterday).

The better news comes in the later part of the week. We can expect breaking clouds and more firmly established sunlight in time for the weekend. In tandem with that is warmer temperatures. Get ready for the 80s.

Now, if we get to the 90s, perhaps I'm not going to be as excited...but by all means this weekend is looking good so far :-)
