Our dry spell is over. Not that long a spell, but a week is impressive in this pattern we've been in for the last 18 months. And now some rain is returning. Still could get some heavy rain showers this evening/early overnight, but since we are stuck in the marine/stable air thunderstorms will have a more difficult time of developing. Those that do develop will likely weaken as they head east toward our area. I would expect about 1/2" - 1" rain this evening/overnight.
Cooler and breezy for Tue and Wed. But another rain maker comes our way for Thursday. The heaviest and steadiest rains will be to our east close to the big cities, and to the west of the mountains. We will get some showers, but a 1/2" of rain can be expected with more if heavy showers develop.
Then its nice for Fri and Sat with showers and storms returning for Sun/Mon of next week.
No flood threats. No heat waves either. If you want a nice 5 day stretch of 85 deg weather ... you will have to travel south or south west, because it is not happening here anytime in the next couple of weeks. Note: Our average high temperature is now between 76-78 degrees.
