Yesterday’s balmy weather is now well offshore and colder air will begin the weeklong process of taking back the region. NW winds will rule the day today with the classic upslope/downslope pattern setting up. The mountains will see mainly cloudy skies with steady snows in the favored areas while the coast sees warmer and sunnier conditions (after a few morning snow showers move out). Snowfall accumulation of several inches is likely in the favored upslope areas, you know who you are. Highs will range from the mid 20’s up in the mountains to the mid 30’s along the coastline.
