Clouds and Showers to Start the Work Week

We’ll see ample cloudcover on Monday with a chance of showers. These showers will be scattered, so not everywhere will get rain, and some areas may get a couple of rounds. Rain is likely to be light, though a brief, moderate shower may be possible. Late in the day, a cold front will sweep in from the north. Low clouds will thicken a bit on the leading edge, which could produce some additional drizzle to light rain into the evening, but behind the front, we’ll quickly clear out and dry out! In fact, the front will usher in blustery northwesterly winds which will last through the day Tuesday as a cold air mass continues to push in. Then, we’ll get a break mid-week before a return to active weather.


Monday: Mostly cloudy with occasional rain showers. Highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. A bit breezy on the coast, especially late.

Overnight: A few lingering showers. Becoming partly cloudy with clearing skies toward dawn. Low to mid 40s at the coast, 30s to low 40s inland. Patchy fog possible near sunrise in the valleys.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny with blustery north-northwesterly winds at times. Cool, despite the sunshine, with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Expect another dry but warmer day on Wednesday before we return to an active weather pattern. A broad area of low pressure will approach the coast for the end of the week with the initial cold front coming in Thursday evening accompanied by rain & wind. As the low spins on the coast, additional disturbances will rotate through Friday, Saturday, and perhaps even Sunday. All the while, cooler air masses will work their way in to the point where snow levels drop this weekend. We may also see a few thunderstorms with small hail on Saturday. Stay tuned to the forecast!
