May 7, 2015

    Wednesday May 6, 2015--Clouds clinging to the mountains in the am.

    Lots of blue, another start to an awesome day.

    Clouds did lift eventually but were certainly hanging around the peaks.

    Convective development as the day progressed.

    Just before sunset last night.

For the forecast, the upper level ridge just off shore will give us warm sunny conditions into Sunday. An upper trough may reach the area by Sunday with some cloud into Monday but it may move South so more on that later this weekend. Freezing levels will be above the local peaks. Enjoy the weather.
