Blue sky, plenty of sunshine, temperatures in the 70s and lots of almond blossoms. It must be spring, but that’s still about a month away. And with drought still plaguing the Valley, the beautiful weather of the long Presidents Day weekend didn’t erase worries about the shortage of rainfall so far this season. But there’s been enough rain and warmth to start transforming the Valley into a bright landscape of almond blossoms. Row after row in orchard after orchard, the blossoms signal the eventual arrival of another almond crop. Just how big a crop will be determined by many factors, but growers will be watching the weather forecasts carefully for signs of storms that could bring rain without damaging the blooms. There’s little chance of that this week, with a mostly sunny sky and temperatures in the 70s expected through Friday.
