Here’s today’s blinding flash of the obvious. It’s raining. The skies and the streets should be pretty wet Monday and Tuesday, with the showers tapering off as the week goes on for the Garden Grove-Huntington Beach-Westminster area.
Temperatures should be in the low sixties Monday and Tuesday, warming up to the high sixties and low seventies by Wednesdays. The National Weather Service predicts cloudy weather with some scattered showers Thursday and Friday, with sunny weather starting on Saturday. The chance of rain is 80 percent Monday and 70 percent on Tuesday, going down to 10 percent on Wednesday.

MARINER HAS WINNING SPEECH
Pacifica High School senior Megan McCall’s speech, which encourages students to self-advocate for academic financial aid, was selected among the winning speeches as part of the American Soapbox Initiative. She was selected to represent Orange County at the Mikva Youth Summit in Washington, D.C. along with other soapbox speech winners from across the country.
Megan was awarded with an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., which she took in January during Martin Luther King Jr. weekend. She toured the Capitol, delivered her speech in front of fellow winners at Lafayette Square across from the White House, and participated in a Youth Summit and Leadership Cafe at AFL-CIO discussing community issues and concerns with local community advocates and activists.
