Sunday evening forecast Feb 2nd

Despite cooler temperatures, our Sunday turned out to be very nice and mild. temperatures from Saturday to Sunday dropped about 10 to even 15 degrees. We are still seeing a very strong wind event taking shape for much of the region. High Wind Warnings and Watches cover just about all areas. The strongest wind will be in the mountains and below any canyons, especially those that run in or close to a north - south direction. Most areas will see winds at or near 35 - 45 mph, but the most favored areas could actually see gusts going up to or even above 80-mph! The ocean will also see the effect with many boating advisories as well as a High Surf Advisory as a strong northwest swell is rolling in. Lastly, very cold air is rushing in from the north and this will bring temperatures way down. Many areas are under either Freeze Watch or Warning criteria. Down sloping winds will help some, but where it's wind free, expect very cold lows on Monday!
Looking ahead, the winds will continue in to Monday before finally backing down. However, the cold air will linger until at least mid week with very cold overnight lows expected and chilly afternoon highs. By the second half of the work week, things should stabilize with a mild offshore flow and gradually warmer temperatures in to next weekend. Unfortunately, despite the quick reminder tomorrow that we are still in Winter, no significant rain systems are yet poised to head our way. A slight chance may develop by next Sunday, but that seems at this time to be pretty weak.  Both November and December were very good months for precipitation while January just did not produce. Hopefully the long range will show some improvement as we head toward mid February!
