Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Tuesday, May 21 @ 06:09pm *** WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FOR WEDNESDAY ***
Another late season tough of low pressure deepening off the west coast has strengthened the onshore flow and deepened the marine layer enough to squeeze out some light rain and drizzle this evening, with a few snow showers also possible. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, windy and cold with southwest winds gusting to 30mph at times, temperatures will remain in the 30's with the snow level around 7,000 feet. This trough of low pressure will sweep through the area on Wednesday with snow showers likely, continued cold and windy out there with highs only in the lower 40's. The snow level could fall to around 5,500 feet with several inches of snow possible, especially across the higher elevations. Low pressure will pull eastward Wednesday night into Thursday, throwing a little wrap around moisture in our direction with a few lingering showers into Thursday morning, otherwise clearing, breezy and cool with highs in the upper 40's, while overnight lows dip into the 20's. Friday should be a fairly nice finish to the week, a little warmer as well with temperatures finally reaching the 50's. It looks like decent weather as we head into the big holiday weekend with highs in the 50's again Saturday, we should stay dry. However, another Spring storm is forecast to roll in on Sunday with more wet weather likely, possibly spilling into Memorial Day. At this time, it looks to be a fairly weak and warmer system, so I don't think we'll see any snow, but certainly not the un-official start to the Summer season we were hoping for! If you have travel plans anytime now through the holiday weekend, be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions and always carry tire chains!
