It’ll be a frosty Monday morning. With clear skies and some very dry, cold air in place, look for the North Bay to get below 32. This morning at the Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport the low dipped to 33. Therefore, a frost advisory has been issued for the north bay between 3am and 8am Monday morning. This may be the last hurrah for late fall tomatoes.

On Tuesday, there is a good chance of rain, but it looks to be a fairly light amount. A stronger and better organized storm looks to hit around Thursday morning, with the probability of steady rain. It’s a good thing too, Santa Rosa is now below average for rainfall season to date. The October 13 rains are but a memory, as the water deficit has grown in the last week to almost three-fourths of an inch.

Southern California’s fire season, which really never goes away, has posted Red Flag warnings for the inland empire in San Bernardino. Meaning the locally gusty offshore winds are bringing single digit humidities to the region. If you have been keeping up with the southland, you will remember the PD published a story about a surprise rainstorm that created debris flows in some of the fire ravaged areas this past summer. Go figure, rain, mudslides and fire weather all in the same week.

California, the state of disasters.
