I really like the fact that we have our own local weatherman as a columnist for Patch.

Very kind of you to say, Rich. Thanks. A little more info as the National Weather Service releasedRead More their Wed 8 PM discussion... It looks like we still have a great shot at some rain tomorrow, but since there is no cold front associated with this cut-off low, showers will be spotty in nature. We could see a lot of rain, we could see very little rain. Some areas could see a bunch while other areas see not so much. That's just the nature of this kind of low. One thing that does look good is the chance for some of those spotty showers to strengthen into thunder-boomers. The NWS was throwing around terms like heavy rain, hail, cloud-to-ground lightning, and even a stray waterspout (tornado over water) cannot be ruled out, so if you encounter ANY of these, do take it seriously and head for shelter.

UPDATE: Westerly flow giving the marine layer a good onshore shove tonight. I was driving throughRead More fog and mist on my way back from the West Side just now. Expect patchy fog and overcast skies to give way to sunshine by mid-day. The deep marine layer will also further limit the highs. Temperatures are only expected to reach 83 Wednesday. Forecasters have backed off a degree or two on the weekend, but it will still be a good 10-15 degrees warmer than midweek. Now expecting Friday to be the hot day with a high of 97, with cooler temperatures returning early next week.

Remnants of tropical disturbances Ileana and John are both having a go at the area, really totallyRead More dismantling this forecast. Tropical moisture is streaming in, evidenced by satellite imagery. This had brought huge changes to the forecast. We've already had some light rain here at the SCWC, and skies are overcast, really limiting the heat for today. National Weather Service doppler radar indicates scattered light showers across the entire area. I'm not sure how any of these could build into thunderstorms given the lack of heating due to cloud cover, but we'll keep an eye on it.
