Dry Run End Tomorrow..Plus Beavers, Lobsters & More!...Nov 27th

High pressure will allow dry weather to stick around for one more day...although with mainly cloudy skies. A Pacific low pressure system will begin to impact the south coast Tuesday overnight with showers..and steadier rain starting Wed afternoon. We could be looking at some gusty winds tomorrow evening as it swings onshore.

The system will bring warmer air though- back to double digit highs for tomorrow onward. Unsettled conditions will continue the rest of the week into the week
