The wind will also pick up out of the west, making it feel much colder this afternoon. Tuesday will be cold and breezy, with the chance for a few snow flurries, and high temperatures around 39 degrees. Early morning lows will be in the 20s and highs in the 30s...until Thursday. We will have some occasional showers through the weekend.

Wednesday will be partly sunny to partly cloudy and the start of a mostly dry stretch through the weekend.

Snow amounts would barely be noticable since most surface temperatures will be remaining above freezing. Sunshine will be the main feature in our clear sky today. Valley areas will top out in the high 60's to low 70s, and mountain areas are projected to end up in the mid 50's to low 60's this afternoon. This coastal low already began sprinkling the area with some light rain and snow Monday afternoon. Snow levels will be around 5,000 feet, with just a light dusting possible at the higher elevations. The next system is pressing in overnight, and we do welcome a chance for showers before sunrise tomorrow morning.

Oil down on continued concerns over US output
Additionally, new government data showed speculators cut bets on oil, suggesting more selling could be seen over the near-term. Despite the lower rig count, an early indicator of future output, activity remains much higher than a year ago.


The scattered snow showers stick with us into tomorrow.

Today: Sunny, windy. Highs: 41-46.

SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy skies and cold temperatures continue, with an overnight low of 36 degrees. Presuming you made the switch, you then enjoyed the first of many post-7 p.m. sunsets Sunday night. Moisture returns on the heels of a breezy southerly wind by Thursday, resulting in more clouds and a few scattered showers.
