Your Forecast


By Dave Salesky

6.14" of rain in October that's over 3" above normal. Now it looks like drier weather is returning for at least the first week of November. Go figure, this is turning into an interesting fall.

A weak ridge will begin to build across the region tonight, keeping us dry. I do expect wide spread areas of fog on Friday morning. Some areas could see visibilites below 1/4 of a mile.

After the fog lifts we should have partly to mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will remain in the low 60s, about 5 degrees above average.

Through at least the middle of next week we'll have no better than a 40% chance of rain. Freezing levels will remain well above pass levels.

Good Friday and we have some very good weather.

Outside of some morning low clouds and fog patches this morning we have partly cloudy and dry skies in the forecast. A weak ridge of high pressure will build over the area today. Temperatures will climb into the low 60s by this afternoon.

Enjoy the break because it will be short-lived on Saturday another weak storm arrives bringing more clouds and rain across the region. We will be on a bit of a roller coaster this weekend. Saturdays rain showers will give way to drier conditions on Easter Sunday.

Our sunrises and sunsets are legendary around here, but how would you like to see all the sunrises and sunsets on Earth -- at the same time! And it doesn't even require a trip to outer space.

Instead, the moon is going to essentially turn into an astronomical version of a projection screen as we get the first of four consecutive lunar eclipses over the next two years.

Even though the moon will be in the Earth's shadow, it should appear a bit colorful, some shade of red or orange. That's from light around the edges of the Earth - essentially all the sunrises and sunsets at the moment - splashing on the lunar surface and faintly lighting up the moon, said Alan MacRobert, senior editor at Sky & Telescope magazine.
Weather Blog An 'Egg-xaggerated' tale: You can stand up an egg on the equinox!
Happy first day of spring! The planet hit its equinox at 9:57 a.m. PDT and now every second that passes is one closer to the start of summer, or as those on the frozen tundra that is the East Coast will tell you, one second farther away from winter.

Today brings us equal daylight of 12 hours (within a few minutes) and the annual trek to see if you can stand up an egg today.
