This one may get us. Recently, there has been a good amount of rain around us, but basically missing Santa Cruz. A weak circulation of moist air is developing over the ocean to our west, and that system will slowly push south and east. It will bring with it rain for most parts of the state over the second half of the work week. That is good news. We have a cooler day today, with the marine layer pulling out around noon to reveal a partly cloudy sky as moisture streams overhead. Wednesday still looks similiar. We could see showers in the hills as early as Wednesday night, with an increasing chance of showers into Thursday morning and through the day. The Sierra is looking at getting a good inch plus of precip. There could be a few feet of snow on the peaks by Saturday.
Showery weather through the day Thursday is looking likely, with chances for light showers on Friday. We could even hear some thunder late in the day Thursday. Barely 60F both days. Not much sun. As it is now, this system should be east of us by midnight on Friday. We could be in for some nice sunshine on Saturday. The rainy season is not over quite yet.
