Temperatures milder, but rain could stay

The cold snap that had Lodians reaching for extra blankets has officially left town, said David Houk, a meteorologist with AccuWeather. com, a private weather forecasting service.

That chill came from a common system that moved through the northwest during the rainy season, said Houk. Polar air masses invaded and collided with continental air masses, creating a weather pattern both drier and colder than usual. It made for reasonable daytime temperatures, but there was no cloud cover to keep the warm air in at night.

But that pattern is shifting, and marine air is coming in from the Pacific.

“We’re not looking at any more nights in the upper 20s, for a few days at least,” he said.

Two storm systems are moving into California on Friday, and the Lodi area will likely be caught between them.

The weather is expected to be dry on Friday, with daytime temperatures in the 60s and dropping to around 40 degrees at night. Some patchy clouds will block any stargazing.

On Saturday, the southern system will move off to Colorado, leaving Lodi with just the outside chance of rain during the day. There’s a bigger chance of cloudy skies, while temperatures remain in the 60 range by day and the 40 degree range by night.

A new system will come in on Sunday, with temperatures in the middle 50s and a slight chance of showers.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
