GOOD for all reporting stations
A few showers linger until Dark Thursday before a cold night sets in. Dry conditions will persist throughout the weekend with cool days and cold nights. Expect more clouds at the end of the weekend on the front-end of the next system. Wet and wild weather returns next week.
Rest of Thursday: Clouds slowly diminishing with a couple of persistent isolated showers. Cool and airy with tops in the 50s.
Overnight: Fast; inland lows in the 1930s, lower 40s closer to the coast. The winds are getting milder. Mostly clear sky.
Friday: Cool in the morning, then sunny but still cool. Windy northerly winds over the hills at times.
Expanded: Dry conditions continue through the weekend with slightly warmer afternoons, but Saturday morning promises to be downright freezing, even as we approach the coast. Clouds will intensify on Sunday and then rain will return on Monday and Tuesday, which could be heavy at times. We will probably also see strong winds during this time. Those with travel plans early next week will need to watch the weather very closely. We’ll take care of you, so watch with us! 😉
