Enjoy the beautiful day today because things go downhill quickly tomorrow and the trend is worse:
- Enjoy the beautiful weather today because it will be a distant memory this weekend as rain moves in tomorrow and continues through Saturday. It will also be windy from tomorrow into early next week with gusts in the 30 to 40 mph range from the ENE to NE. Saturday will feel like March with rain and highs only in the low 50's, but with it feeling chillier with the persistent wind.
- The trend has been for higher rainfall totals this weekend and also for the cut-off low pressure system to linger and retrograde closer to the coast and farther north, so showers can't be ruled out all of next week.
