Good afternoon! It is certainly much cooler outside than yesterday and that is reflected on the graphic below. A swing of 25+ degrees is being felt, where most temperatures won't top 40 degrees through the afternoon hours. Fortunately, we do have a big warm up on tap, with highs warming to the 70s by mid next week.
Looking below, the Weather Prediction Center has highlighted a rare day 5 marginal risk of flash flooding. There is still a lot of uncertainty in amounts, timing, and strength, but it is something on our radar that we will be watching closely. A frontal boundary will sag south providing rainfall chances into early next week, followed by a developing and passing low and cold front. With the boundary laying nearby, repeated showers could induce flash flooding by mid week as the low draws closer. Take this all with a grain of salt now and tune back in for updates early next week.
Sunshine will be slow to return today, but western and the central valley counties will likely see it first. Into the weekend, most stay sunny with temperatures warming into the mid 50s and beyond by Sunday. Cloud cover and shower chances then return for the upcoming work week. Have a great weekend!
