Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
The cool, showery weather from the weekend spilled over into the beginning of the work week. Highs holding in the low 60s and upper 50s for Monday, tonight, we should see some breaks in the clouds and lows falling into the mid 40s. That’s good as the next couple of nights we’ll be in for a nice meteor shower, the Eta Aquaraids late tonight and early Wednesday morning. There’ll be up to 30 meteors per hour peaking in the pre-dawn hours. For more information on the shower, check out: http://www.nasa.gov/topics/solarsystem/features/watchtheskies/eta-aquarids-ustream-2014.html#.U2g1QoFdXBZ
A few leftover showers late tonight and early in the AM for the mountains, otherwise, clouds will slowly start to break up by the afternoon. Highs tomorrow will be similar to Monday, mainly in the low 60s. High pressure will drift in late tomorrow and Wednesday bringing a little more sunshine for the afternoons. Skies may be better suited for meteor watching early Wednesday morning.
The next storm is back on Thursday with more rain for the coast and valleys and wet snow mixing in the mountains down to around 5000 feet. Friday also looks to stay cool and showery, Saturday another trough of low pressure and then finally starting to dry out Sunday evening and early next week.
Have a great Monday night!
