The start of the weekend will be unsettled with stubborn low clouds today. There will be patchy areas of drizzle this morning, with a slow uptick in temperature this afternoon. Most will top out in the upper 60s. By tonight, a warm front will approach the Mid-state, and spread steady rain in ahead of it. The rain will linger into early Sunday morning before a lull arrives after sunrise.
Sunday will feature plenty of clouds but perhaps a window for some sun around lunchtime. A cold front will then approach during the afternoon, and if enough instability is available, scattered thunderstorms will develop. Severe weather is not expected but at this time but a couple of strong storms are possible as some of us experience our first lightning and thunder of the year. The front crosses Sunday night but that’s only the beginning of an unsettled stretch of weather that is expected to last well into next week. Low pressure will hang along the coast with several disturbances rotating around it. Showers will be around Monday, and then again as we head late into the week, when high temperatures will struggle to reach the upper 50s. April showers bring May flowers!
