Major Warm-Up

A big pattern change will occur early next week, and it will give us very warm temps much of the week.

Highs should make it into the lower 80s Sunday, then mid 80s Monday & Tuesday , then upper 80s by Wednesday.  These temps will be 10 to 15 degrees above normal.

The record highs look like they will hold for another year, but we will be kind of close (especially Tuesday).

Record highs:

91°  Sunday

90°  Monday

89°  Tuesday

93°  Wednesday

The warmest day of the year so far was 84° on April 15.  The last time the temp was above that was all the way to August 16, when it hit 94°.

We have only hit 80° on 5 days in April, and 2 days in May (prior to today).

May only produced 3 days with highs in the 80s the last 2 years, but in 2007, we had 9 days in the 80s and 4 days in the 90s.
