Eyes Ahead To Rain Chances

Air Quality Report (As of 7:30am)
Good to moderate.

Weather Story: The weather will now transition from a warm and dry period to a cool and wet period. A trough of low pressure will dig down the West Coast on Friday. It will likely push a cold front through our area that will be accompanied by rain early in the day. Showers could linger all the way into Saturday morning. Another weather system will move in Sunday night with a better chance. Perhaps the strongest, wettest system on the way is slated arrive on Wednesday. Temperatures will be much cooler starting Thursday/Friday and will likely remain that way next week.


Thursday: Mostly sunny with a few high clouds passing through. Low clouds/fog return to the coast late in the day. Expect coastal highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s with 60s to low 70s inland.

Overnight: Some fog and drizzle possible ahead of morning rain chances. Lows in the 40s along the coast with 30s inland.

Friday: Low clouds for the coast and nearby valleys overnight. Then, a cold front will bring a band of rain to the region mid-morning. It will be followed by scattered showers throughout the day. There is a very slight chance of lightning with the showers. Snow levels will also begin to drop down to our peaks. Much cooler, with highs in the 50s. Gusty northwest winds at times.

Extended: 
 A few showers may linger into Saturday morning. Otherewise, mostly sunny, cool, and breezy. The nest storm will arrive Sunday evening with a wider band of rain. Showers will linger into Monday. A stronger system may reach our shores on Wednesday with the potential for heavier rain. All the while, expect highs only in the 50s to around 60ºF.
