Frosty start this morning after yesterday's rain maker.
Most of the area received between a half inch to an inch and a half from the storm. Upper elevations got snow and last night the I-5 had to be shut down over the Grapevine because of poor visibility, snow and wind.
Today we are in the cold and moderately unstable air left behind from the cold front. No more rain is likely however when the sun tries to warm things today some cumulus clouds should pop up over the course of the day. It'll be cold, mid 50s will likely be as warm as we get.
This sets the stage for another very cold start on Wednesday with coastal locations under a freeze watch, this mean temps 32 degrees or cooler for a duration of several hours possibly damaging sensitive plants.
After that Wednesday looks also to be partly cloudy and cold with 50s for highs again. Thursday rain returns and could rain intermittently into Saturday before shutting down.
The next series of impulses will not be as cold and high temps despite the rain should return into the 60s by the end of the week.
