The second storm of the week will bring light to moderate into Friday morning, along with gusty winds, and well below normal temperatures.

The storm will also bring the coldest temperatures of the week on Friday, averaging close to 20 degrees below normal in some parts of the county.

We will see light showers, becoming more widespread by morning. Be prepared for a slick commute Friday morning. Moderate will be best likely early until about 9am, then the rain will turn into light showers by the afternoon and possibly evening. This type of storm is more typical during the late fall to early winter.

This storm will tap into an atmospheric river though it's not likely that we will tap into the deepest moisture. We are still on track for rainfall totals to average between .25 to 1" with the highest totals in the mountains.

Gusty winds will target the mountains and deserts with westerly gusts of 30 to 50mph while winds for the coast and valleys will generally be less than 25mph.

This weekend will start out cool on Saturday, but temperatures will recover becoming warmer on Sunday with 70s and 80s back in the forecast.

There is another chance for showers on Tuesday but there remains quite a bit of uncertainty with this next storm track. Right now, it looks like rain will be light Monday night, but windy on Tuesday with blowing dust possible in our deserts.

Stay tune to our Abc 10News Pinpoint Weather Team as we track the rain, and the changes over the weekend.

Friday's Highs:
Coast: 65-68°
Inland: 60-71°
Mountains: 56-64°
Deserts: 77-82°
