Good Tuesday morning, 

Finally after 6 weeks, we have rain on the way.

A cold low pressure system to the north will begin to drop south and rain will spread into our area tonight and Wednesday.


Last night the wind was blowing pretty hard from the Northwest, most of the night.

Expect more wind this morning, and a cool day.

Tonight, the low pressure system starts it’s truck southward and will position itself off San Francisco. 

Rain chances will climb tonight, with rain for all by Wednesday morning.

SLO will even start to see some rain this afternoon. For us we have all day to button up and prepare.

This is going to be a cold system, with snow levels at 4000 feet tonight and dropping to 2500 to 3000 feet Wednesday night. This will give us some snow on local mountains and the Grapevine. 

Rain will start up in SB tonight and follow suit in LA over night.

This system will tap into some moisture off shore which will enhance rain fall.

Overnight, rain might be heavy at times with thunder and lighting possible Wednesday.

Rainfall will be a modest 1/2 to an 1 inch, with higher amounts in the mountains.

Wednesday night the rain tappers to showers and snow level drops. This might make for a pretty and white morning in the mountains. 

Thursday a chance of showers as the low moves east, but this is mainly in eastern California. For us, just a chilly day with highs in the upper 50s. 

Friday though Sunday we warm some, but don’t expect much.

Temps overall will remain below normal for this time of year. Highs in the 60s.

I hope everyone enjoys the reunion with rain, Enjoy!

Thank you for coming up to do the demo for the Career Fair at Los Prietos. All the boys were fascinated by the chance to see how sheet metal is formed, and to do some of it themselves. A hands-on demo is always the most effective in getting the boys involved. We really appreciate your arranging the demo, especially since you had already put so much energy into the talk and demo you did for the Construction Technology class. The teaching and Probation staff were all impressed by how involved the boys were in your demo.
