A weak trough that passed through California and is now over the Great Basin is drawing in air from the coastal areas, deepening the Marine Layer in our area to about 4,000 feet and creating the potential for some strong onshore winds and light showers for today. Clear tomorrow and Sunday, then a confused picture emerges for next week.
Multiple plumes of moisture will work their way along the California coast, some containing as much as 2-1/2 times as much moisture as normal. However, it is uncertain if any of the weak troughs of low pressure moving toward California will be strong enough to wring this moisture out as rain and snow. For now the best that can be said is there is a potential for rain / snow for midweek, but the timing and amounts of this precipitation is to be seen as we get closer.
