|Winter is a great time to grow potted flowers.|
Still seeing a chance of rain by Wednesday next week. We could see cooler air move back in, but that is no more certain than the rain. Regardless, it just does not look like that high pressure is going to break down. The runs the past few days have a stronger looking high pressure just sitting in place. They still have that large low pressure system, but it spends a bit of time in the Gulf, and eventually gets ejected north of here. All of this is still a week or more away, so a lot could change. I personally hoping to see the forecast revert, but not really thinking that will happen. The past few winters suggest a dryer solution with the rain going north. It is funny, I am reading a book about the Dust Bowl, and how people kept hoping the long term drought was not do persistent, and that rain was just a few days away. And not too long ago I heard a report suggesting this is just round one in a long term drought for the west that should peak around 2040. Anyway, enjoy the fine weather, pray for rain and begin thinking of way to really curtail your water use. Restriction likely to remain in place and perhaps increase in severity.
