TODAY'S FORECAST

COOLER AND BREEZY! 61°F 9:30AM Hey hey Giovanni here. A bit cooler and breezy today again as Low pressure offshore and well to our south brings us closer to average temperatures for this time of the year. Today's temperatures may reach the low 70s with overnight lows in the low 50s. This cooling trend is expected to continue through early next week bringing us partly cloudy skies and a chance of Sierra t'storms on Tuesday. We clear out and start to warm up again later in the week, but by Saturday a few showers will be possible as a weak Low passes close enough to trigger showers along the Sierra foothills and through the western slope.

The long range forecast shows the first full week of May with the potential of showers as a trough may hang offshore. Too soon to tell, but we will most likely see another cooling trend. Have a sensational Sunday.
