After a rather active night of severe weather across parts of the region, colder air is moving in after a recent cold front passage. Any lingering rain this morning will be quick to exit the area, and be mostly confined to coastal marine areas.
Otherwise, temperatures continue to drop like a rock behind the front, with many locations waking up this morning in the 40s to 50s.
The weather story for today can be summed up in just three words: Cloudy, windy and cool.
Winds will gust into the 20 mph, and at times even the 30 mph, range throughout the day. The winds will taper off overnight, but will remain strong enough for the wind chill to play a factor.
Expect much colder morning lows, especially by Wednesday and Thursday morning. Once clouds finally exit the area overnight Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning, temperatures will likely plummet to the freezing mark for many locations along and north of I-10.
Friday and into next weekend becomes interesting, as a very strong disturbance crosses the California Pacific coastline. This will bring rainfall and potentially a few thunderstorms to the area this weekend as temperatures warm back into the mid/upper 60s.
