While an isolated snow shower into early Tuesday morning is a slight possibility, we will be entering into a week of drier and warmer weather. An offshore ridge of high pressure will build and move onshore bringing back sunshine by Wednesday, and will warm up temperatures back into the mid-60s soon thereafter. In the short term, partly cloudy skies on Tuesday will yield a high temperature near 50 degrees and fairly light east winds. Most of the clouds will clear out by Wednesday, and it will be a week or more before we see our next chance of any more storms.

You may recall in a previous column I talked about some of the world records in terms of snowfall. It was interesting to note that all the records came from the United States, and nearly all of them were from the west coast. But when I talked about the largest snowflakes on record, April Pedersen had a hard time believing it: “15 inches wide and 8 inches thick? Is this for real? Do they have 6 sides? I’ve never heard of anything like that. Is it a myth?”

Find out tomorrow.
