One more dry day before an unsettled stretch begins

What a beautiful spring day it was for our first full day of the new season. Many folks saw the mercury hit 60 degrees on the thermometer.

Wednesday will be another pretty nice day – a few degrees cooler and not as much blue sky as we had on Tuesday. Winds will also be more out of the south than the west.

A fast and active jet stream will bring several rounds of moisture to the area over the next several days.

Sfcmap Nm2The unsettled weather pattern arrives in the overnight hours leading up to Thursday morning.  We won’t see a total wash out- rain will be scattered and light through Thursday/Friday, and you can probably salvage your day.

Saturday may begin dry but another round of rain moves in during the evening hours. As of now, the EURO model is projecting the totals around an inch or so, but that could change closer to time.
