PM Update: Holiday weekend starts dry
Sunday storm to drop decent rain, clearing Monday
Despite a fair amount of cloudiness today, warmth has performed -- or overperformed -- yet again. Highs have made it to the middle, and even upper, 50s in many spots this afternoon. This evening will be dry and fairly mild for any work week-ending activities, and we should also eke out a fairly pleasant one tomorrow before rain arrives for Sunday.
Through Tonight: Evening temperatures remain mild and fall through the 40s. Skies are partly cloudy overnight with temperatures warmer than recently. Lows generally range between the upper 20s and lower 30s.
Tomorrow (Saturday): We get one more pleasant day before rain arrives for Sunday. Expect partly sunny skies with some increase in clouds possible later in the day ahead of the storm. Highs should shoot for 50 or above most spots, unless we see extra clouds early in the day.
West Coast storminess: El Niño has yet to send a lot of rain to California, but that's about to change in a big way. A series of storms (see predicted totals: storm 1 | storm 2) is expected to impact the left coast starting this weekend. Storms will bring heavy rain, copious high-elevation snow and the threat of mudslides (particularly to areas hit by fires over the past year).
