Outside a few peeks of sun, clouds and chilly temperatures ruled the day. Highs mainly in the low and mid-40s are a good deal below normal by this point in March. That cold air is fueling a snowstorm, just not here. Some will see snowflakes, and most everyone will feel the wind tomorrow.
Through tonight: As a storm develops offshore, we’re mostly on the outside looking in, as usual. Overall, precipitation of any real value is to our east. At times through the evening, light snow may cross over Interstate 95, but it shouldn’t amount to anything around here, other than a dusting on elevated surfaces or mulch and the like. As we get past midnight, that risk tends to end, although a flurry or quick snow shower is possible into the pre-dawn hours. Temperatures eventually dip to the mid-20s to lower 30s.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): Skies clear out behind the storm. We do what we do best with these things and get some wind cranking up. We’re pros at wind, so sustained 20 mph winds with gusts past 35 mph should be doable. Highs are in the mid-40s to around 50, although it will feel chillier in those gusts, especially in the shade.
So 2 weeks ago odds were about 1 in 50 catching up w/ respect to our Sierra snowpack and seasonal rain totals. *If* the kind of numbers from the 12z Euro prove true, could see a decent jump ahead as long as our March keeps behaving more like January #CAwx pic.twitter.com/IE1FybjGpa
