Nice Warm-Up Coming

March 12, 2010; 2:00 PM ET

Looking ahead to next week, the weather event that sticks out will be the big warm-up in California and other places in the Southwest. A big ridge building aloft will help bring about the warming and it will really feel like spring is about here. Depending on where you are, the warmest weather will occur at different times between early and midweek. For Arizona, Utah and central and eastern Nevada, the warmest weather will not occur before Wednesday and Thursday. However, in parts of central and Southern California, the warmest weather comes Monday through Tuesday, lingering in spots Wednesday.

Below are some of the warmest temperatures I expect during this period.



San Francisco-67


Los Angeles-83

San Diego-80

Palm Springs-90

Las Vegas-78






Salt Lake City-61

Certainly in Southern California and the desert Southwest it will be time to break out the shorts.
