This video shows a frontal system bring rain (and wind) to California, I even experienced driving thru windswept rain this evening as I was heading out to meet with my cousin to do some late errands. A storm system, or cold front, was bringing rain (some heavy) and wind to the Bay Area this day & evening with possible thunder to the north as this system moves inland. Isolated cells with moderate rain & gusty winds continued thru the overnight hours. Milder, drier weather was in store for the region in the coming few days before another storm system was set to arrive by Sunday/Monday… Footage filmed from around San Jose, CA on Wednesday evening, April 11, 2018.
Not a lot of change in the large scale weather pattern for the next week. We were to continue to see fast-moving low pressure troughs & frontal systems move across the region every few days or so. The next frontal system had approached the coast this day, bringing in rain to the Bay Area this day and evening. Some pockets of heavier rain (and wind) was likely during the system’s passage. The precip was to turn to showers Thursday morning and decrease during the day. By late Thursday afternoon thru Saturday, we were to see partly to mostly sunny skies with near normal temps. By Sunday, another low pressure area was to be along the coast. This system was to bring more rain to the north state Sunday with showers and possible t-storms thru Monday. By Tuesday, we were to have a break and then yet another low pressure trough was to move in Wednesday afternoon & Thursday… Looks like a typical spring pattern now with rain, sun, rain, sun & repeat!
