PM Update: Brief Mild Spell Already Ending
Nice weather out... raw and eventually wet in
A one-day shot of milder air is coming to an end as a cold front passes through and ushers chilly air back into the region. Temperatures were able to squeak up into the lower 70s many spots today, and it could be the last time we see readings that high for a while. Breezes that have become gusty from the northwest will continue into the evening before calming back again overnight. Despite the wind, this will be the nicest evening of the rest of the work week, so tend to any outdoor chores or activities if possible!
Through Tonight: Mostly clear skies and fresh cold air will combine to produce one of the chilliest nights so far this fall. Overnight lows should fall to the upper 30s in the coldest spots to the mid-40s downtown. Winds gusting above 20-25 mph in the evening diminish back to around 10 mph late. Clouds could increase a bit by sunrise.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): We may see a little sun in the morning, but clouds should dominate the day as temperatures only rise toward the rather raw mid-50s. Though we probably don't see much rain during the day, some isolated showers are possible starting in the afternoon. Odds of rain become a little better heading into night when some scattered activity is possible as a storm gathers off the coast.
West Coast Storm: The first test for Southern California wildfire zones is moving down the coast from northern California. A major early-season storm, associated with the remnants of Typhoon Melor, is expected to drop up to 3"-5"+ of rain on California over the next day. San Francisco has already been dumped on with near 2" of rain since midnight. Because the moisture is tropical in origin, snow levels are running very high, but some Sierra Nevada peaks are expecting several feet of snow and winds gusts to around 135 mph.
