Monday’s wet system has arrived. More rain and wind are on tap today and tonight. Wind may gust to 25mph later today here in the valley and up to 40mph along the coast.
Expect mild temperatures this week. A bit cooler on Wednesday, but we may push the upper 50s by Friday.
We are already at about 5″ of rain this month and we are going to potentially pick up another 2″ this week. We will continue to pull in as much moisture as we can to help out with drought conditions. Here is the latest drought map as of January 23.
Temperatures remain above average about all week, with signs of some cooler air arriving early next week. It’s not set in stone, but weather models are trending to a potential cool down by early February.
