Cloudy skies, cooler temperatures, and the potential for more active weather is ahead for your Tuesday. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 50's for most of the valley, and mountain areas are in the low 30's to mid 40's. Afternoon high temperatures are only projected to climb into the low to mid 70's for the valley, and mid 50's to mid 60's in the mountains. The potential for active weather will continue to be strongest in the far northern zones of the state, with a very slight chance of showers in the mid valley and surrounding foothills. Winds will be up to 15mph, but directions will vary.
Most of the moisture looks to head up to the North tonight, but another system will arrive in the West Coast late Wednesday. That system will track to the South from Wednesday night through Friday, and spread the potential for widespread active weather through the entire region. Showers, thunderstorms, and snow down to around 5000 feet will be possible. Valley areas can expect around a half an inch of rain, while mountain areas could have around an inch from Thursday to Friday.
Temperatures will continue to be cool this weekend, but conditions do not look to be very wet. The system that is bringing the active weather late week will track into Southern California by Friday, and then head East. I hope everyone enjoys these cooler temperatures heading towards the region, and has a great Tuesday!
