Rain showers will continue tonight with isolated heavy downpours.
Tomorrow the clouds will part, allowing for mostly sunny skies and only a few puffy pretty clouds to form over the mountains. It won’t be a crazy warm day, but temperatures in the low 60s will make it very comfortable out there. Monday we’ll see much the same weather, but just increase the amount of clouds over the mountains. We’ll call that partly sunny.
Tuesday the clouds return in full force as a weak disturbance moves in from the ocean. This system will largely miss northern California but will bring rain to the mountains and some light rain to the valley floor. The bulk of the rain looks to be overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning.
After that high pressure starts to build back onto the west coast. Models are hinting at a return of the giant ridge we saw for most of 2013 and for November through January. This time, though, the ridge will be slightly more progressive, and won’t have the staying power it did before. That means it will bring us some sunshine to end the week but will likely depart relatively soon after with more rain showers to follow.
