Sunny Skies Remain, Rain Comes Next Week

More sunshine tomorrow but rain threatens mid week.

High pressure remains over northern California tomorrow with clear skies, calm winds, and temperatures reaching into the mid 70s once again.  That same weather persists into Monday as well before a strong ocean storm will push it out coming into Tuesday.  Tuesday will bring some rain showers in the morning with the first batch of moisture, and will dry out during the afternoon.  There could be some residual showers Tuesday afternoon but a secondary batch of moisture will roll in Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Wednesday’s rain looks to be slightly more widespread and could have some heavier pockets to it.  It also is looking like it’ll be an all day thing.  Temperatures will suffer with the cloud cover and will struggle to make it out of the 50s.  The rain won’t be crazy heavy but will be persistent and could amount to about half an inch in the valley for Wednesday with a storm total of near 1 inch.  Expect higher amounts in the mountains.  Thursday the clouds will start to clear out but we’ll have to watch for some thunderstorms which could pop up with any persistent sunshine.
