Stormy Weather Later In The Week

A cold air mass will settle in for the next couple of days with cool days and cold nights expected. Then, a potent storm system packed with cold air and tapping into Central Pacific moisture will arrive on Thursday bringing moderate rain and gusty winds to the region. Another colder, but dryer system will follow on Saturday with more rain and wind expected. Snow levels will drop below mountaintop for both systems. Details will be ironed out as they approach.

AIR QUALITY: Good

Overnight: Mostly clear with a few low clouds hugging the hills and some fog possible in our southern valleys. Cool, with lows in themed 30s to low 40s on the coast and upper 20s to mid 30s inland. Breezy over the hills and on the exposed coast.

Tuesday: Clearing and cool with highs in the 50s to low 60s. Breezy at times for inland valleys.

Wednesday: Cold in the morning with patchy frost to the coast, widespread frost for inland valleys, and a hard freeze for higher elevation valleys. Mostly sunny but cool in the afternoon with highs in the 50s-60s. Light winds.

Extended: Rain & wind expected on Thursday, possibly lasting into Friday. Highs only in the 50s for most areas. Then, another system Saturday into Sunday with more rain & wind and even lower snow levels.
