Scattered showers return tomorrow, but most of them will be light. A cold front that will be followed by a warm front will bring more widespread rain on Monday. As we start the brand new month, it looks like February will welcome in a few systems next week. Temperatures will go from about 50 for daytime highs into the middle 50s by mid-week.
Days are getting longer, adding about 23 minutes of daylight in the past 8 days. Now that the sun is setting past 5pm, our big leap to daylight savings on March 8th will be even nicer as we head into what is looking like a mild spring.
Of course, winter isn’t over yet, and for all of you snow lovers out there, we should have a few nice days on the way. We are in back to back El Nino years (warmer than average) so our snowpack is suffering right now. Last year, however, the snow started falling in the mountains in February and March bringing our levels up to normal. So, we still have a chance of getting a few more ski days in, before the new season arrives. I guess we can just want and see what the groundhog tells us on Monday.
