Another wonderful day outside with temperatures topping off in the mid to upper 60s across the valley. Plenty of sunshine was replaced with some high clouds in the afternoon. This will not impact evening plans as no rain will fall from this weak system. A partly cloudy sky is expected for the next several hours, but the clouds give way to a sunny sky before the sun rises.
Saturday is a day of transition. Clouds begin to build in the afternoon and evening. No rain is expected. If you have been stuck inside at work during the nice weather, Saturday is your day to enjoy it! Temperatures peak in the mid-60s again. A brief period of rain arrives early Sunday morning, giving way to showers the rest of the day. Between a quarter to half an inch is possible with this system on Sunday. Highs will fall back into the mid to upper 50s. Chances for rain continue next week. Showers are possible Monday as the Sunday system exits the region. Tuesday and Wednesday will see a chance for rain. This is an atmospheric river moving into SoCal. Impacts will be limited compared to what it could be. Not as much rain is expected. Snow levels will also drop since we get the colder end of the system. Falling to roughly 3000ft to 5000ft. Models are backing off on the rain totals. Some models bring 1-2 inches of rain to the valley. There is still some uncertainty on how far the storm moves to our south. Subtle changes could mean the difference between seeing more or less rain than suggested. This is something we will continue to watch and hone in as we get closer. For the end of next week, there is a chance for more rain, but models are even backing off on those rain chances also. For now, a chance for showers is expected.
