Daytime Inversion Still Holds
The sun is getting higher in the sky every day, but at solar noon the sun is still only 12 degrees above the horizon. This is still not enough to break the inversion without some clouds and/or wind help, as Wednesday afternoon's sounding shows. Temperatures in most places on the valley floor never got out of the single digits, while higher elevations were in the low 20s.
