A touch cooler today with clouds building this evening bringing a chance for sprinkles to patchy drizzle out of a juicy marine layer overnight into tomorrow morning.

There remains some uncertainty for the track of this storm but at this point it's looking like the bulk of the moisture is going to stay to the north of us. Rain totals will be light from a trace to 0.25", with the best chance for the foothills and mountains. Snow levels could drop to about 5,000 feet with a light dusting, but it won't last.

The storm will bring strong westerly winds to the mountains and deserts with gusts of 25 to 50mph. The coast and inland areas will be breezy with winds of 15 to 25mph.

Santa Ana winds quickly develop Thursday night into Friday, with temperatures jumping 5 to 10 degrees warmer. AWind Advisory will go into effect at 10pm Thursday through 3pm Friday for our mountains. Northeasterly winds of 25 to 50mph are expected in the foothills and the mountains. Santa Ana winds will subside by Saturday, but mild weather will stick around for the weekend.

We spring forward this weekend as Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday; so be sure to set your clocks ahead one hour before going to bed Saturday night.

Thursday's Highs:
Coast: 63-67°
Inland: 59-66°
Mountains: 48-58°
