After a lightning storm delayed the start of its Western Regional game Sunday night in Arizona, the Crescenta Valley-Foothill Junior All-Stars took the field against host Thornydale of Arizona. The teams didn't get far, though, never making it out of the first inning before rain came down on an already soaked diamond to lead to the postponement of the game. CVFH and Thornydale will now play Monday at 5 p.m. and the winner will play a to-be-determined opponent right after the game.

Tim Willert An unseasonable weather pattern that brought cloudy skies and morning drizzle to Glendale on Monday is expected to stick around until Thursday, forecasters said. A stationary low-pressure system combined with a deeper than normal marine layer is responsible for the overcast conditions, National Weather Service Specialist Stuart Seto said Monday. "It's not unusual in May or June," Seto said. "But it's kind of unusual for August." The clouds and drizzle are expected to last until Thursday morning, when a gradual warming trend should move in, Seto said.

GLENDALE ? A showdown between the region's best boys' and girls' track teams will have to wait. On Friday, area coaches agreed to cancel today's second annual All-Area Meet at Glendale Community College's Sartoris Field because of the possibility of inclement weather. "Bottom line, [the weather] is supposed to be ugly," Burbank Coach Darin Wolf said. "I am afraid that the hail and snow we experienced in the area [Friday] morning is only an indication of what [today] has in store.

For the last few days, I had optimistically hoped the TV weather reports and Doppler radar were going to be wrong. I had turned a blind eye toward my leaky roof. I was even willing to pretend the mud sliding down the street wasn’t foreshadowing more ominous things on the horizon. But on Tuesday morning, when Al Roker showed up to do the “Today Show” weather report from our neighborhood, I came to terms with reality. Last week, he was covering the horrific events in Haiti.

It was hot on Saturday, but not too hot. In fact, it appeared to (finally) be a perfect day for a Hometown Country Fair.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- It may seem hard to believe with the clouds and cool weather of the past few days, but Memorial Day weekend is expected to be hot and dry. "It's going to be a nice weekend," meteorologist Curt Kaplan said Thursday. The winter-like weather we've seen this week is common during this time of year, he said. When warm weather heats up the inland and desert areas, Kaplan explained, the hot air rises, bringing in cool air and clouds from the Pacific Ocean.

Chuck Benedict Television weathermen, like Dallas Raines of KABC-TV Channel 7, often are the most popular personalities at their stations. If this is not a coincidence, what gives a weatherman such a positive image? DALLAS RAINES: For years, my working with weather has been an addiction. That creates a positive image. I have preferred to turn down game show offers because the weather spirit within me dominates. That spirit has spilled over into my personal feelings and I like to share myself with the community.

Rima Shah The warm weather that Glendale residents have been enjoying will cool off for the rest of the week, according to Bob Gregg, a local amateur climatologist. Monday's weather, with a high of 75 degrees, was warm, but not even close to the record high for the day. The record for this date was 85 degrees, in 1989, Gregg said. The Santa Ana winds, which blow in from the northeast and compress as they go down the mountains, are a cause for the recent warm temperature, he said.

While last weekend's wet weather was a welcome reprieve , it wasn't enough to wash away a statewide drought that is tracking close to the worst one ever in California's history, said a representative from Glendale's water supplier on Monday. And although Glendale's main water supplier, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, has cobbled together enough water from several sources, including reserves, to get through the 2014 “water year,” which began in October, mandatory conservation measures are a possibility in the future if reserves get too low, Metropolitan engineer Demetri Polyzos told the Glendale Water & Power Commission.

Frigid overnight temperatures have led to an influx of homeless in the city, some of whom have been erecting tents and loitering at a park near the Adult Recreation Center, intimidating seniors who use the space to do tai chi, city officials said. In one case, officials found one tent that had a microwave. Last weekend, some transients began fighting. Many of those who have been causing problems at Glendale Central Library or in the park are homeless people who don't use the emergency winter shelter at the National Guard Armory on Colorado Boulevard.
