Two more sunny and warm days before winter returns with a vengeance.
Monday and Tuesday of next week look fantastic. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 80’s in the valley and sunny skies overhead will remind everyone of the beautiful days of summer without the triple digit heat. Thing start to change quickly as we get to Wednesday as the ocean system starts to move in from the west. Wednesday looks cooler, but nice and will set up Thursday and Friday to be much cooler.
The system moving in off the Pacific is a very cold arctic system from the Gulf of Alaska. This system is very strong as well and will have lots of moisture associated with it. It will be similar to the system we got a few weeks ago, but with more cold air associated with it. There will be widespread showers in the valley and lower elevations and snow levels could dip as low as 2,000 feet in some areas. There is also the real possibility of widespread thunderstorms as the sun will peak out in the middle of the storm allowing for the added instability to fire off several storms. We’ll keep a close eye on this and keep you posted as things develop.
