Forecast for Sunday, May 5, 2013

Another delightful day is expected on Sunday courtesy of a blocking pattern in place with the region trapped under a dome of high pressure. The Omega High will begin to breakdown as we move into Monday, allowing for moisture to begin invading from the south. Some increase in the cloud cover is expected for Monday as a result. A few showers may sneak in late in the day, especially south. Meanwhile, the east wind will continue Sunday and Monday with cooler temperatures near the coast and warmer temperatures across the interior.

An area of low pressure from the south will slowly move northward through the remainder of the week. This will help to develop periods of showers for Tuesday and Wednesday. Another system approaches late in the week bringing an additional opportunity for showers. It shouldn't rain all of the time, but that "chance" has to be maintained given the potential triggers. Some peaks of sunshine are possible during this unsettled period as well, especially late in the week. But I don't believe it will be as sunny and bright as the past several days.
