Jade Festival Weather

5:00 pm – yup, it is here. The first rain of the season. Oh, so nice.

4:15 pm – look at the difference one-half hour can make in the Nexrad.

4:00 pm – in the last 15 mins the band of yellow has pushed its way to just over 1/2 way to the coast from the Salinas Valley. It should be here shortly, boys and girls.

Update, 3:45 pm: Here it comes:

At this point, this is what NOAA says we can expect: “ON THURSDAY THE LOW BEGINS TO TRANSITION OUT OF THE AREA AS A WEAK HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE BUILDS ALONG THE CALIFORNIA COAST. THE RIDGE WILL STRENGTHEN OVER THE WEEKEND RETURNING WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS TO THE REGION. AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BE AT TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL BY SUNDAY.”

Despite the great prediction, dressing in layers is always a good idea this time of year down here on the South Coast. See you all Friday!

In the meantime, scattered showers possible today and tomorrow, thunderstorms possible on Wednesday afternoon, and those of us in the mountains can expect temperatures down into the 30s by Wednesday.
