|Jack-o-Lantern. Have fun and be careful out there this Friday.|
Up in the Sierra, the Lake Tahoe is expecting a dusting to a few inches, with more on the ridge lines. The Sierra Crest is looking at about a foot in the best locations, with more perhaps in the south. It will all depend on how this thing splits. In fact, Big Sur is looking quite a bit wetter than Santa Cruz and San Francisco. They could see well over an inch of rain in the Santa Lucia, and a good inch along the coast. Expect a solid inch in Ben Lomond, and well over a half in here in town. These are solid numbers for Halloween. Nothing our of the ordinary, but certainly hefty. Not nearly enough to dent up the drought, but enough to feel good. And water that garden for the week. And with the long term being consistent with another system hitting about a week later, things do look promising. Anyway, as I was saying, Halloween night, things begin to clear out. Expect sporadic showers through the night, and even into the early morning hours on Saturday. And a cooler day. But it will clear out quickly, perhaps offering up an epic sunset for the last day before we Fall Back. Yup, don't forget to sleep (or party) an extra hour Saturday night and turn back those clocks one hour before you go to sleep. Gotta save that daylight.
Sunday things move back into the 70s, with another warm up for the middle of next week. Likely not as warm as today, but another nice period, before perhaps more rain. Yay.
