Much cooler weather develops with shower chances

Posted at 2:16 PM, Nov 19, 2019

It'll start to look and feel more like fall around the Central Coast over the next few days. A low pressure system will drop in behind today's cold front and spin away over southern California.

We are in line to pick up some showers around the area, but generally the amounts will be light (.15" or less). Some folks may not get any measurable rain at all. The best opportunity for showers will be overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning but some stray showers are possible into Thursday since the low will spin away in the region. Elsewhere in southern CA the potential is much higher, in fact the San Diego region could see some spots with 1-2" of rain.

In the Sierra Nevada the snow level is around 6,000ft and at the highest levels up to a foot is possible.

The weekend is interesting, a low looks to be offshore but its position will actually encourage offshore flow which will boost temps back into the 70s.

The extended outlook took a little shift today with next week looking windy Monday and Tuesday but dry until a shower chance Wednesday. The larger system next Friday now is not showing up on the morning model runs. Suffice to say the details of the deeper extended forecast are in flux so we'll have to watch as things come together.
