monday even warmer. mid 80s. yup. mid 80s the actual expectation but that's when the front begins to advance and i would say tuesday late empty day that we start to see our best shot for showers at this point future weather wants to pick up on steadier rain around our area and very likely a thunderstorm. keep an eye on that. that is the one and only spot that brings in wet weather. for cinco de mayo no less. meanwhile we take a look at your pollen report and predominant pollen are oak, bitch and maple the levels at best at 9.8 and that's for tomorrow. keep the meds ready to go. just a few clouds tonight. comfortably cool at 53 degrees. and tomorrow we start this nice warming trend with full sunshine sunshine. 10 degrees above the seasonal average at 80 degrees. keep in the back of your head we are coming up pretty soon on the unofficial beginning of the summer season. of course, that's memorial day
