This coming week is likely to bring a multi-day stretch of below-average temperatures and a good chance of rain (snow in the mountains).
Although Monday may be a little cooler than today, it will likely still be a mild day with only a slight chance of afternoon showers or a thunderstorm. Tuesday might be a bit cooler with another chance for afternoon showers or a thunderstorm.
The peak of the cold snap appears to be on track for Wednesday and Thursday. During that time there may be long cloudy stretches and a period or two of steady rain (snow in the mountains). Although this spell is not likely to be quite as cold as last week’s cold snap, I can’t completely rule out the chance for some wet snow in the lower elevations, but the chance appears to be small. Gardeners even in the low elevations should prepare for the risk of damaging frosts (for tender annuals) on one or more mornings from Wednesday to Friday.
