A transitional day today with a strong cold front crossing the Valley. Take your umbrella. We expect periods of showers today, although it won't rain all day. Rainfall amounts around 0.10-0.25". There should be a thin ribbon of heavier rain and possible thunderstorms from 2:00-5:00p.m. This line could contain gusty wind. Wind is a big deal with this front. Southerly breezes will keep us warm today near 65-70°. Winds will increase through the day; likely gusting over 30mph by mid afternoon.
Showers end this evening and skies become clear. Temperatures will do a nose dive into the teens for overnight lows. Strong winds from the northwest will gust over 30mph. Wind chill values will be near 0° overnight and early Thursday morning. Take time now to prepare for this drastic drop in temperatures after the spring-like weather from the last few days.
Thursday will be sunny, cold and windy. Wind gusts around 35mph are likely. Breezes won't diminish until around 7:00p.m. Thursday. High temperatures are forecast in the mid 30s. Gusty wind will put wind chill values in the single digits Thursday morning, and in the teens for most of the rest of the day. A real shock to the system!
Thursday is only a one day cold snap, however. Highs Friday through Sunday should find their way back into the 50s. We'll be variably cloudy through the stretch and no significant rain is forecast through the weekend outside of a possible sprinkle late Saturday or early Sunday. There could be a higher impact storm to track early next week as low pressure rides up the coast. Stay tuned!
