Tim Chuey Weather:

The chance of showers and thunderstorms will stick with us through midweek, then back to sunshine and dry weather.

High: 78
Low: 52
Forecast: Thunderstorms

closed low (brown circle) is sliding south from Canada through Oregon into California bringing us more clouds as it moves through, but I don’t think we’ll see any significant precipitation just a chance of a shower or thunderstorm. A frontal system will swing in Wednesday and Wednesday night, again bringing only clouds and not a significant chance of precipitation. We will dry out and warm up as we head into next weekend.

Because weather forecasting is a combination of science, intuition, and timing there can be no absolute guarantees that individual forecasts will be 100% accurate. Nature is in a constant state of flux and sudden unexpected weather events can happen.
