It was a little bit of a wet Wednesday. Look for skies to clear overnight and a windy Thursday to blow on in!
A weak fall storm moved through today, but it didn't bring us much rain. Most areas in the Valley saw about .05", with somewhat higher amounts in the mountains... but not much. This storm has moved east, and high pressure will build back on into the west coast, sending storms northward for a few days. Look for a gusty north wind to develop Thursday, with 25 to 35 mph gusts in the Valley! Those winds won't translate much into the the mountains, and should diminish Thursday night.
Friday and Saturday look nice, and we should see great weather for Halloween!
Our next storm arrives Sunday. It doesn't look too much wetter than today's storm, but it'll be much colder as it's from the Gulf of Alaska. We'll see rain develop Sunday, turning to showers Sunday night and Monday as the cold air pours on in. Look for a bit of a gusty south wind Sunday as well. Snow levels will start around 8000' Sunday, but drop to near 5000' by Monday morning! The cold air (and upper level low pressure) will be a bit unstable, so a Valley thunderstorm is possible Monday afternoon. Skies will clear Tuesday, and we'll warm up a bit after that.
Don't forget: Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday morning! Fall Back, we get an extra hour of sleep!
