EVENING: Partly Cloudy, Cold. Temps in the 20s.

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Very Cold. Lo 11.

THURSDAY: Mostly Sunny, Clouds Late. Hi 33.

Tonight will likely be the coldest night of the week with clear skies and calm winds. Lows are expected to drop into the single digits and low teens for many backyards. Temperatures then rebound a bit tomorrow, into the low 30s, with sunny skies for much of the day.

Another clipper system could bring us some scattered snow showers for Friday, but the latest trends show this system falling apart over us. Some light snow showers are still possible, especially later in the day, but not much snow should fall Friday. The main attention this weekend will be on a strengthening winter storm along the coast. Where the track of the low goes will determine if our area gets some light to even moderate snow or nothing at all. Trends since last night suggest a less amplified storm, with development occurring a little further from the coast. This means snow impacts for us look minimal, and while guidance may bounce back and forth a bit, anything more than light snow for us is looking unlikely. It will be chilly and windy though Saturday with highs only in the low 20s.

The back half of the weekend remains chilly but mainly dry with highs staying in the upper 20s. A warming trend will take place next week as highs rebound into the 40s by Tuesday, potentially even 50s toward mid-week. High pressure will keep us mainly dry until a cold front approaches later in the week.
