WEATHER UPDATE: SATURDAY 3-28-2020

A weak storm system is drifting southwestward off the coast of Northern California. It will pass our area late Sunday and bring a slight chance for a shower or two Sunday evening into Sunday night (40%). Snow levels will be above 6,000 feet.

Afterwards, we are heading into an extended period of dry and mild weather. Temperatures will gradually warm into next weekend, where highs could climb into the upper 70s possibly low 80s. This pattern will persist through the first week of April.

Long range computer forecasts are hinting at a shift in the weather pattern by the second week in April. We could see rain return during this time period. I'll keep an eye on it and bring more updates.

WEATHER UPDATE: THURSDAY 3-26-2020

Isolated showers will move through the area this morning, then scattered showers will develop this afternoon and evening as the core of this system moves past our area. Showers will dwindle by early Friday morning.

Snow levels will drop to 4,000 feet, so local mountains will receive snow. I've posted projected snow totals below, which shows the highest mountains in San Diego County receiving a few inches of snow (1-4"), while taller peaks to the north in San Bernardino could receive more (3-8").

Most of the weekend looks dry, though there is a slight chance for isolated showers on Sunday (40%) as a weak system passes our area.
