A weak cold front will cross the region today and as it does, it will push ongoing upslope showers off the mountains and into the foothills/coastal plain. Expect showers to be most numerous around 1-4 PM. Outside the mountains, temps will rise into the 40s today so precipitation will fall as rain though some graupel (“soft hail” or “snow pellets”) wouldn’t surprise me given the cooler temps aloft. Abundant low-level moisture has blanketed the area with a thick cloud layer this morning, but we’ll see some breaks of sun develop this afternoon as westerly winds pick up and downsloping becomes a stronger influence on the weather along the foothills/coastal plain. The drier air associated with those winds will also bring a few sunny moments to the mountains, though they will generally be short-lived.
