After a hot week, temperatures plummeted Saturday and will continue to drop through Tuesday. On average, areas west of the mountains saw temperatures anywhere from 15-25º cooler than Friday. Sunday, highs could drop another 5-10º.

A storm approaching California will help keep temperatures cool, plus bring light rain chances and gusty winds.

That storm approaches Monday evening, bringing rain chances overnight Monday and into Tuesday morning. Rain totals are expected to remain minimal with hundredths possible. Snow levels will drop to about 4,000 feet but accumulations will remain light due to that lack of moisture.

Gusty winds will accompany this storm, favoring the eastern parts of the county but blowing all the way to the coast. These winds will continue through about Wednesday.

Starting Tuesday afternoon, sunshine returns and temperatures start to rebound back to normal.

Sunday's Highs:
Coast: 65-71°
Inland: 72-77°
Mountains: 68-77°
Deserts: 91-96°
