These conditions will be similar to what we're expecting Sunday, as warm weather and sunshine close out the weekend ahead of a large winter storm.

Our wind gusts will be staying strong, continuing our high surf advisory.

Wave heights can be 10-12 feet through Sunday morning, before tapering off Sunday evening and surging higher Tuesday.

Winds by Monday night could reach a high wind warning, meaning speeds over 30 miles per hour.

Tuesday night a low pressure system moves in from the north, creating our first large winter storm of the season.

The initial front of the storm late Tuesday into Wednesday will create heavy rain and lower snow levels.

Later Wednesday, the system will create more of a showery pattern with isolated thunderstorms and snow levels continuing to lower.

It's likely the I-5 corridor will have snow as early as late Wednesday.


As for rain, most areas except the Antelope Valley and interior areas of San Luis Obispo County are expected to get around an inch of rain by Friday.
