Today, sunny and breezy with southwest winds gusting to 35 mph and highs in the high 60s to low 70s. A chance of rain overnight with precipitation amounts less than 0.25 inch. Winds will turn to the northwest Tuesday morning and decrease. Cooler but sunny Tuesday, with highs around 60. Overnight lows Tuesday night and Wednesday morning will be in the mid 30s, with frost in sheltered low-lying places. Wednesday through Sunday will be sunny and warm with mostly light winds. Friday highs will reach the upper 70s to low 80s, but will cool a few degrees over the weekend.

Additional notes for the weather nuts: 

Tonight’s precipitation is from the weakening remains of a strong trough that brought heavy rain to California yesterday, described in the media as an “atmospheric river” and a “bomb cyclone.”  An atmospheric river is a concentrated plume of fast-moving moisture that brings heavy precipitation, especially when lifted over mountains. A bomb cyclone, sometimes called explosive cyclogenesis, occurs when a surface low deepens at a rate exceeding 24 mb over a 24-hour period. These rapidly intensifying storms are typically associated with strong winds and heavy precipitation.

Have a great week!
