Weather with Cliff Mass
Fri May 18, 2012
Has "June Gloom" arrived early? Not before garden soils warm
You can blame a ridge of pressure over the Pacific for pushing a layer of cool, cloudy marine air over western Washington, says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass.
Saturday will be "the best day" of the weekend, as the sun is likely to burn through for at least part of the day.
After that, expect cloudy and occasional showers starting Sunday and through much of next week, with temperatures mainly in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
At least, for vegetable gardeners, the warmer temperatures that we've had over the past month raised soil temperatures, says Mass.
The weekly KPLU feature "Weather with Cliff Mass" airs every Friday at 9 a.m. immediately following BirdNote, and repeats twice on Friday afternoons during All Things Considered. The feature is hosted by KPLU’s Science and Health reporter Keith Seinfeld. Cliff Mass is a University of Washington Professor of Atmospheric Sciences, a renowned Seattle weather prognosticator, and a popular weather blogger.
