Justin’s Tuesday Night Forecast Discussion:
Overnight tonight, we’ll see the exit of this system and the entrance of the next one. There’s a chance we may still be dealing with some wintry precipitation into early Wed. as the cold air will still be in the valley but rising in the afternoon. Temperatures will start off near freezing so expect some icy roads for the AM commute, but highs with the warm front coming in should be pushing back into the mid 40s.
The midweek storm will bring high winds and heavy rain to the coast, valley and feet of snow in the mountains. The cold front will be slowly working through the region by Thursday afternoon. Because of the slow moving nature of it, it may drop a couple of inches of rainfall. That along with melting snowpack in the mountains will likely lead to some flooding concerns on coastal rivers and creeks. We may also see another shot at some wintry weather on the back end of that system early Thursday morning. With the rain melting all the foothill snow, some coast range rivers may start to swell by the end of the week. We’ll be watching.
Have a great Wednesday!
