Super sun day to toss out possible record high
Sunshine will be in abundance Sunday for the first time in nearly two weeks as a surge of mild Pacific air scours away the persistent cloud cover that has dogged the area. Afternoon temperatures are expected to climb into the lower 50s, threatening the day’s 51-degree record high established in 1992. However, the sunshine and warmth will be short-lived as clouds and colder air return Monday and Tuesday, with winds shifting into the northeast. As the colder weather reestablishes itself, a series of weather disturbances emerging from the southwest may bring periods of snowfall or wintry mix for the area Tuesday night through Thursday. The precipitation should depart by Thursday afternoon, setting the stage for a cold remainder of the week with daily high temps climbing no higher than the low 30s.
