The rest of the week will feel more like November with cloudy skies and temperatures dropping 5 to 15 degrees below average on Friday.

Another storm will bring a slight chance for light showers Thursday, becoming more widespread on Friday. Be prepared for a slick commute Friday morning and possibly in the evening too. This system is more typical during the late fall to early winter, bringing much colder temperatures and gusty winds to the mountains and deserts. Thunderstorms are not likely.

This system may connect to an atmospheric river, but it's unclear if we'll be tapping into that moisture yet. At this time preliminary forecast totals look to range between .10 to .75", locally up to a 1", but if we tap into the atmospheric river, we could see these numbers double.

The winds will pick up Thursday night, with winds out of the west-northwest averaging between 30 to 50 mph. The winds will impact the mountains and deserts. The winds will also impact our coastal waters,

This weekend will be sunny and warmer with 70s and 80s back in the forecast.

Temperatures will cool down about 3 to 5 degrees on Monday with mostly sunny skies, patchy fog is expected early morning. 

Temperatures will plummet yet again on Tuesday with an even colder storm. It will bring rain, and wind to the county. Stay with our ABC10News Pinpoint Weather Team as we track the storms and the changing conditions.
