More Rain on the Way

From my SLO meteorologist:

“A broad upper-level trough of low pressure will develop off the California shoreline later on Wednesday and will gradually move eastward across the Central Coast Thursday.  This system will produce gentle to moderate (8- to 18-mph)  southerly winds, increasing clouds and widespread rain showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms. Total rainfall amounts will range between a quarter and three quarters of an inch throughout the Central Coast. 

  The central and southern Sierra Nevada will see snow above  6,000 feet where another round of late season snowfall is   expected. The low pressure system exits the Central Coast  on Friday. Increasing northwesterly winds and cooler than normal temperatures will develop on Saturday into next  Tuesday. Much warmer weather may return by the end of next week.”

I haven’t checked what Monterey NOAA is predicting, but this is encouraging … Delaying the start of the fire season, perhaps, but thunderstorms at this date could be problematic, as evidenced by the Mother’s Day fire near Parkfield.
