Not even for my birthday

Guess what? It was my birthday last weekend (Sunday, to be specific) which fell over the verification period for Yuma. To be concise, there was absolutely no effort to facilitate a forecast victory for me this past weekend in Arizona. The low temperature decided to drop much lower than I had in the forecast last Saturday (though I will admit, it was well managed by our competitors) and other outlets, The Weather Channel in particular, went out and actually broadcast a good forecast. What I’m saying is, none of these reprobates could even manage to gift me a victory, and instead relegated Victoria-Weather to last place. I suppose I could have maybe not been so bullish on the cloud cover Saturday morning, and maybe take some responsibility myself, but you know what? No. It’s their fault I didn’t win.
Actuals: Saturday, High 82, Low 54

Yuma, Arizona

Good morning. We’ve made it to the weekend, even if our days at home don’t make it feel that way. We’re taking a look at Yuma today, one of the oldest cities in Arizona.

At 657AM, PT, Yuma was reporting clear skies and a temperature of 58 degrees. The temperature was cool, but the real surprise was the dew points that were in the upper 40s, surprisingly moist for Yuma under high pressure.
A surface ridge will remain in place, but the lingering moisture in the area should keep temperatures from being unbearable. Upper level troughing is digging in from the north Pacific, with a late season area of low pressure headed towards northern California, which may work to bring in a little bit more of that latent moisture into Yuma by Sunday.

Sounds pretty nice as I get to experience an April icing event here at the home office. Check out the satellite, which shows that the moisture I was talking about isn’t leading to any clouds.
