TODAY'S FORECAST

SEASONAL! 52°F 9:30AM Hey hey Giovanni here. Noticeably cooler this morning as Low pressure to our south keeps us a bit cooler with a few clouds possible this evening. This system is generating showers over SoCal bringing them some rain and relief from the oppressive heat. Today's temperatures may reach the low 70s with overnight lows in the mid 40s. A few showers look possible on Tuesday especially along the Sierra crest as that same Low to our south passes east. We then clear out and start to warm up again on Wednesday, but by Saturday evening into Sunday a few showers will be possible as a weak Low passes close enough to trigger showers along the Sierra foothills and western slope.

The long range forecast shows a good chance of inclement weather the first full week of May, but it's still too soon to tell if we will see any rain, or just a cooling trend. Have a marvelous Monday!
