After a blustery, raw start to the week, things have momentarily brightened up and gotten much more pleasant for us thanks to an area of high pressure. This at least gives us a break from clouds and showers for a day in what is shaping up to be a long-term “active” weather pattern, one that […]

Our comfy air  at the end of last week is long gone and replacing it is a much more humid and potentially hottest air mass of the season.  Highs locally were kept down Saturday thanks to clouds from a decaying thunderstorm complex that passed to our south earlier in the day.  Highs out west topped […]
