Justin’s Monday Night Forecast Discussion:
The fog has been very stubborn over the past two days and will likely hang in there for a third as we head into Tuesday. That said, we’re staying dry on Tuesday as the storm brewing in the Pacific won’t send its first wave at us until Wednesday. Expect clouds to thicken up late tomorrow afternoon with highs a tad warmer in the low 50s.
The first batch of rain is here by Wednesday morning, mainly scattered showers. Another, stronger batch blasts through by Wednesday evening. That one will also bring some strong winds with it. Wind gusts could exceed 40-50 mph at the coast and we may finish with a very breezy evening inland here as well.
After that, we’ll get hit with a wave just about every 24 hours or so, so expect to see soggy conditions from Thursday through the weekend. The cold air will stay offshore so highs will hold in the low 50s and lows above freezing. Snow lines also holding between 5000-6000 feet should keep the Passes clean of snow overall but ski resorts will see another nice week of fresh snow. Rainfall estimates may put another 2-4 inches by the end of the week, so we may again be watching for some isolated flooding at times.
Have a great Tuesday!
