Another cold night is on the way for tonight, but with cloud cover moving in ahead of the next weather system, I don’t think it will be as cold as what we had Saturday or Sunday morning. Temperatures by Monday morning will cool to the freezing point (32°) for the North Bay and East Bay valleys; mid 30s for the Santa Clara Valley; and upper 30s/low 40s near the bay.
That Pacific weather system will be here for the Monday morning commute. It will make for mainly cloudy skies through the day, and not much in the way of rain. There could be a few brief, passing showers at times.
Skies clear out Monday night and we’ll be sunny to start Tuesday. By Tuesday afternoon, clouds ahead of the next weather system will be on the increase. This system will also be moisture-starved, and as of right now no rain is expected as it makes its way across the Bay Area Wednesday.
A third, and stronger system is here Thursday. This one does bring a chance for rain. Preliminary rain estimates range from a half-inch to an inch-plus with the highest amounts anticipated to the north of the Golden Gate.
Dry and mild weather is back for Friday and the weekend. The models do show a storm system hanging out offshore Saturday and Sunday. We’ll keep watching this one as we get closer.
