A hot start to the week will moderate a little as we head toward the second half of the week, but all in all, the weather will range from mid-spring to nearly mid-summer throughout. Tuesday is likely to be the warmest day of the week, with high temperatures giving a run at 90 degrees in some valley locations. That heat will likely cause some pop-up clouds in the afternoon, but things are stable enough to keep us dry throughout the week. A dry cold front will move through the region late Thursday which will drop our highs from the 80s into the 70s on Friday and Saturday.
Weather is one of those subjects on which everybody has an opinion… and it also can play tricks on one’s memory. Jim Verner made this interesting observation: “I have a contractor coming tomorrow. He made a remark in passing about all the work he misses on Thursdays because of rain. He is convinced that Thursday is the rainiest day of the week. It started me thinking: Wouldn’t it be fun to see if there is some accidental pattern in our rainfall that makes some days wetter than others?” Well, as strange as it sounds, there might (emphasis on might) be a day of the week influence on some weather. More tomorrow.
