As midday approaches we're seeing the clouds on the increase over the county - so much so that by late afternoon they should be close to a mile thick and we may be getting some light sprinkles or pockets of drizzle out of it. We might possiblly even see a few showers.
Highs will be in the low to mid 60s west of the mountains - low 50s in the mountains and low 70s in the deserts. Winds will be gusty the next couple of days, especially in the far east county where we could see winds reach 50+ mph in those mountain passes to the east. A high wind warning is in effect for these east county areas through tomorrow morning. There's also a coastal advisory because of extreme high tides and bigger than normal surf.
Overnight tonight and all day tomorrow are out best chances of rain with this system and don't expect much out of it - maybe a tenth or two at the coast and a half inch in some of the mountains where rain will be turning to a snowy mix by early tomorrow morning. Only an inch or two of snow is expected locally but up to 6" in the higher mountains to our north.
It remains cold through the weekend with another chance of rain on Saturday. Overnight lows in the Valleys, mountains and deserts could be near or below the freeze mark on Thursday & Friday.
