Stormy Wednesday Before a Couple of Nice Days...Oct 2nd
- Our cold, low pressure system sitting off shore that has been responsible for the unsettled weather as of late has once more good fight left in it today
- Showers, gusty winds and cold temperatures will continue through the day with the chance of a thunderstorm. Like yesterday, the cold, unstable air has set the stage for potential funnel clouds over the water. Not likely to touch down but one to keep an eye on again today!
- Showers will taper off by this evening as a high pressure ridge moves in to replace the unsettled air mass. Sunnier skies and temperatures a couple of degrees warmer are on tap for Thursday and Friday
- At this point it looks the next Pacific frontal system will move in Saturday night for showers and breezy winds right through Monday
