Weekend Forecast

The rain will slowly move south but very little to the east
tonight, reaching San Francisco by about midnight. There
is a slight chance for a light shower during tonight’s World
Series game but it is expected the game will be dry for the
most part.

The cold front will accelerate southward on Friday, with rain
spreading southeastward through the day and reaching San Luis
Obispo by Friday evening (between 5 and 9 p.m.) Rain will
continue through Saturday morning.

Rainfall amounts should range between 0.50 and 1.00 inches
along the beaches and coastal valleys and 1.5 and 2.5 inches
in the mountains between Cambria and Atascadero.

Clearing will occur Saturday afternoon, with partly cloudy skies
continuing through Sunday with temperatures ranging between
the 60’s to low 70’s.

Strong high pressure will rapidly build across California on
Monday and Tuesday, bringing fair skies and temperatures in
the 70’s with a chance for a few 80’s on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Fire Watch to Weather Watch

In anticipation of the storm coming in Friday, I have changed from fire watch mode to storm watch mode, which I do about this time each year. Fire season is effectively over, and we came through unscathed – in fact, most of the state did, also, except for some stubborn fires in Kern Co.

My links on the right have been changed so that those who wish to check weather reports, road reports, rivers, and other items of value during this season can do so easily.

Nextrad for tomorrow:

I like the yellow tulips, but will change them in November to be season appropriate to the northern hemisphere. Start thinking about a winter Big Sur photo you might want to submit for the December 21st header contest.
