A series of Pacific storms will impact the West Coast through much of the week with gusty winds, areas of heavy to excessive rainfall forecast over coastal southern California, and some mountain snow.
CHRISTMAS WEEKEND: Look for increasing clouds on Saturday, but it will remain dry. To our west, our next weather system will be organizing and we will bring in a chance of rain Christmas Eve, as moist air is pulled northward into the state. The more widespread rain looks to arrive Sunday night and will continue into Christmas Day on Monday. It won’t rain all night Sunday night or all day Monday, but periods of rain are likely with some potential for thunder in spots. No severe storms are expected. Highs will likely be in the upper 50s and low 60s all three days.
REST OF 2023: Still no signs of bitterly cold Arctic air for the Deep South, yes it will be cold, but very tolerable. As far as rainfall, showers should remain in the forecast Tuesday and Wednesday, but dry weather looks to return to end the week.
