A tail end of a weak cold front will move through the region today bringing in a slight chance for showers this afternoon at the coast and on the west side, and a chance for snow showers at the ridges with snow levels dropping down to 3,500 feet. I’m thinking most areas will remain dry today and through the weekend as high pressure quickly builds into the area which means fog will remain in the forecast longer, but it also means we’ll be dry and if the fog clears we’ll see some sunshine return!
On Tuesday our next cold front will pass through causing a drop in temperatures, so a drop in snow level and a chance for rain and snow. Showers will start to move in to the region late Tuesday with the bulk of the rain and snow on Wednesday then showers continuing Thursday. This system is not going to be very moist, so not expecting buckets of rain with this system, but since it’s a colder air mass we’ll see more snow than rain than previous storms. The previous strong storms have been brought in by the pineapple express which is a warm, tropical atmospheric river so snow levels we’re very high.
