Tim Chuey Weather:
The rainy season looks like it has started in earnest and will bring even more rain this week. A short break mid week then more rain late in the week.
An upper level trough of low pressure has moved in along the coast bringing the chance of rain with it. A cold front pushed through Oregon Sunday and following behind will be another front Monday. Yet another frontal system will come in later in the week to increase the chances of precipitation. There are a lot of dry lawns, grasslands, and forests that greatly appreciate the rainy season getting under way.
Mostly cloudy today with a slight (20%) chance of rain and breezy (wind: S 15-25 mph in the afternoon), rain tonight (0.25 in. of rain possible), cloudy Tuesday AM and partly cloudy in the afternoon with a good (50%) chance of rain, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Tuesday evening, partly cloudy with patchy fog late at night and early Wednesday AM, mostly sunny Wednesday afternoon, then mostly clear Wednesday night highs 70-75 lows 54-49.
