As high pressure to our south moves offshore Tuesday, temperatures will warm with above normal temperatures expected Wednesday and Thursday.
Drier weather will return from west to east Sunday midday and afternoon with a little sun, but a cold, gusty wind at times. Almost 470 flights were canceled before crews were able to open one runway shortly after 10 p.m., according to a spokesman.
The slow moving storm system we've been watching all week finally moves through Alabama Saturday. Showers continue Monday with best chances in the Central Valley during the afternoon.
Our next weather maker will push in over the next weekend and ironically enough bring another threat of storms to the area by next weekend!
Sunday morning will be cloudy with a few showers possible. We'll end next weekend with drier and cooler conditions with lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s. A brief spin-up tornado can not be ruled out, but the majority of the storm damage will likely occur due to straight line thunderstorm winds.
The Monday storm could drop between a tenth to quarter inch of rain on Fresno, with higher amounts possible should a thunderstorm occur. Main threat will be the damaging straight line winds 50-60mph+.
Average highs this time of year should be in the upper 60s. We expect 2-3 inches of rain to come down from this - which could prompt flooding Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning.
Another cold front will arrive Friday, but it does look capable much rain across the area.
Temperatures on Monday will increase around 10° for most of us with a lot of melting going on. Just keeping a slight 20 percent chance for a shower. Be sure to check back for regular forecast updates, as this cold weather hangs tough this weekend.
