The weather, currently.
Scattered showers with a rumble of thunder possible
Scattered showers with a rumble of thunder possible
Precipitation will be less widespread on Tuesday than it was on Monday as the main storm system has moved out of the region. In its wake, the onshore shore will still usher in Pacific moisture-generating more rain, especially in the typical convergence zones.
Do not be surprised if you hear a few rumbles of thunder in the afternoon! The air mass aloft will be cold enough to generate some instability to generate isolated thunderstorms. A couple of areas may see some tiny hail due to the cold air aloft, but otherwise, severe weather is not anticipated.
High temperatures on Tuesday will reach 54ºF. Expect a low around 42ºF.
What you need to know, currently.
How's everyone doing on this first #daylightsaving Monday? We're loving the extra hour of 🌞 but definitely feeling a little groggy.

Let us know in the replies what you’re doing with your extra hour of daylight using #CurrentlySpring
The United States and Canada “sprung ahead”— gaining an extra hour of sunlight in the evening but losing an hour of sleep— when daylight saving time arrived this weekend. 
There are mixed feelings about daylight saving across the board— there is excitement about the extra post-work daylight, there are early birds who dislike the darker mornings, and more general negative feelings about changing the clocks altogether
Experts argue that moving the clocks back and forth each year is bad for public health and safety— disrupting sleep patterns, affecting mental health, and increasing car accidents.
Whatever your feelings for daylight saving are, it is certainly a sign that spring is really on its way. What are you doing with your extra hour of daylight? Let us know by replying or quote tweeting this tweet, using the hashtag #CurrentlySpring.
