It is not over yet.

Been suuuper busy, so not really posting up.  As we see another chance of rain approaching, in late May, I thought I'd make sure it is on the radar.  In case you have plans this weekend.  I do.  Anyway, the weather has been fairly nice.  Good spring growing weather, with fog sticking around through the morning, allowing seedlings some minor warmth, then clearing, with nice warm afternoons in wind protected areas.  The winds sure look like they have been ripping on the ocean come afternoon.  Anyway, it is a good start to the growing season, and with sun popping out every day, we are not in the gloom.  The goal is to avoid the gloom while your tomatoes are fruiting.  Babble, babble.  Weather is looking to remain the same through Thursday, although there may be gustier northwest breeze come afternoon.  Friday will be a bit cooler, and cloudier.

Grommithog Day 3/29:  A Grom emerges from his hole and sees bluebird fresh pow.  There will be 8 more weeks of winter.

And seems like the best chance for rain in Santa Cruz will be very early Saturday morning.  QPF is low, so don't expect a down pour.  There is currently one one-hundredth of an inch forecast near Monterey.  More is expect along the Sierra crest, and they may see snow flakes falling at lake level Saturday.  Accumulating snow in the high country.  Could be a powder day Saturday morning.  Squaw is open if you need lift served.  Carson Pass is fat, and I believe Tioga and Sonora will be open from the west this weekend, if you climb.  Just a little jealous I'll miss out on Sonora.

Showery weather may return Saturday afternoon.  Even a slight chance for some thunder, with a greater chance on the west slope.  Could be a fun day.  Weather system mostly east of us by Sunday, but still in the Sierra through Monday perhaps.  A return to the spring like weather is likely for Santa Cruz to start next work week.
