Weather Now

Grab your rain gear! It’s going to be a rainy, foggy, and milder start to the work week, with 1-2″ of rain likely.

We do expect the showers to become more widespread late this morning, continuing through the day and night. Some of that rain could become heavy this afternoon into tonight. Some localized street flooding is possible, especially when you consider the melting snow along with the rainfall.

Winds will also increase this afternoon and evening. Gusts of 30-40 mph are possible; they will potentially a bit stronger along the south coast.

The weather remains unsettled and mild on Tuesday. Temperatures will be near 60 with lingering showers and drizzle, especially late day and evening. A cold front will move through Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, sending temperatures tumbling. As it slowly slides off-shore, rain will mix with and change to snow.

TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY SNOW?

Showers drizzle and fog continue on Tuesday, with very mild air (near 60 in the early afternoon. As a cold front finally tries to move out of our area Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, cold air will return and any rain showers are expected to mix with and change to snow. Some accumulating snow is possible early Wednesday.

Right now, we’re thinking that most of us could pick up 1-3″ of snow Wednesday morning, with less along the coast. That could lead to difficult travel for the AM commute with improving conditions in the afternoon. Please check back for updates!
