    The next big storm is knocking on the door. 

    We'll see partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies Friday with highs only in the low to mid 60s. During the morning expect patchy, dense fog and spotty drizzle. This afternoon, we'll see gusty winds up 20 mph west of the mountains and up to 30 mph in the mountains.
     
    We could see some isolated sprinkles or showers overnight Friday and then some scattered showers on Saturday through early afternoon with the heavier, steadier rain moving in towards late afternoon or early evening.

    We're expecting up to an inch of rain in the valleys, maybe .75 of an inch near the coast and possibly two inches or more in the mountains. 

    The first batch of rain should be the heaviest. It should move out overnight Saturday with some lingering showers early Sunday. 

    Then a second system, a colder system with less rain, moves in late Sunday, lingering into Monday morning's commute. This second wave will bring us very chilly, windy conditions and maybe 4- 8 inches of snow above 4500 feet by Monday's noon-hour.
     
    The storm should then move out by Monday’s Charger's game but the cold air will stick around through Wednesday with highs only in the low 60s and overnight lows in the 30s and 40s.

    Thanksgiving should be cool but clear.
