|Harbor light. We could see some marine layer the middle of the week.|
Wednesday will be the coolest, perhaps Thursday. Tuesday, through Thursday, highs will be in the mid to upper 60s, with 25 knot winds blowing off the ocean. It surely will feel much cooler than the last few days. By Friday, the winds will lighten, and temps will rebound into the low 70s. A short reprieve, as over the weekend, we will drop back into the mid to upper 60s.
What is interesting is how much colder things will be at elevation. Daytime highs over the weekend were in the mid to upper 50s at 8000 feet. Today they drop to about 50F, but as we move through the week, those highs move done through and to the low 40s. By Sunday, highs will be in the mid to upper 30s. And that is when we see the first chance of snow. In fact, by Easter Sunday a large wintery system is set to be posed just off the California coast, and will slowly shift rain inland. Or so say the models. This could be the pattern change into winter we have been looking for all winter. It is possible to see increasing chances of rain from Easter through next Wednesday. Still a ways out, but only time will tell. Fingers crossed, and be prepared to see some wet weather begin to impact our region starting next week.
