More rain is on the way….Don’t put away your umbrella just yet. We are tracking more rain in your forecast.


As we move through our Monday night, expect mostly cloudy skies. Rain chances will go up late tonight, in advance of another system moving in from the southwest. Low temperatures will dip into the mid 40s.


On Tuesday, we’re expecting a good chance of rain courtesy of a low pressure system that will move in from the southwest. Some of the rain could be heavy at times. A stray thunderstorm is not out of the question. Some of our forecast models are estimating rainfall amounts between 1 and 2 inches with this system. Otherwise, expect cloudy and foggy conditions. It will be breezy, with winds from the east around 10 to 20 mph, with gusts to 25 mph. High temperatures will be in the mid 50s.


Most of the rain will be offshore by Wednesday, giving way to some a mix of clouds and sun through the day. Highs will be in the mid 50s. On Thursday, a strong cold front moves in from the west, which may give way to a couple of showers. But the most noticeable difference will be our temperatures. Highs on Thursday will be in the 50s. By Friday and Saturday, high temperatures will sink into the low and mid 40s!



Tonight:  Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Showers Late (30%). Low temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: E/NE 5-10 mph.


Tuesday: Cloudy and Foggy. Rain Likely (90%). Stray Thunderstorm Possible. Windy. Highs in the mid 50s. Winds: E 10-20 mph, gusts to 25 mph.


Wednesday: Isolated AM Shower (20%). Clouds and Sun. Highs in the mid 50s. Winds: N 5-15 mph.
