We saw a lot of sun yesterday, but more cloudiness is expected today due to increased humidity. Light showers are still possible for our local mountains and for areas west of the valley like San Bernardino today.
Rain is most likely to develop in the valley floor overnight Sunday into Monday night. The rain will continue to be light and scattered as a stronger storm system approaches Southern California.
Heavier and more consistent rains are expected Monday night through Tuesday. We could see 0.25 to 1 inch of rain in the valley floor in addition to higher winds.
The National Weather Service has called for a strong wind watch for the Coachella Valley which is scheduled to begin Tuesday from 1 pm to 11 pm due to sustained winds between 35-45 MPH and gusts that could reach up to 65-75 MPH.
A First Warning Weather Watch has been issued ahead of the storm as the team continues to track rain and stronger winds that could create difficult travel conditions and lead to more runoff flooding.
This cold system will also bring heavier snowfall, primarily to the San Bernardino Mountains, where mountain communities could see 1 or more feet of snow.
Scattered showers will remain possible through Wednesday before conditions begin to dry out on Thursday. Temperatures will start to recover until next weekend, but will likely remain 10° below the seasonal average (81°).
