Season's first major rain predicted to arrive soon

LAKE COUNTY – It's time to get the hay out of the field, and dig out your raincoat, boots and umbrellas, as the first significant rainfall of the season is forecast to move over Lake County beginning today, Wednesday.


The National Weather Service in Sacramento (NWS) believes that a strong low pressure system from Canada will move southward into Lake County today bringing an increase in clouds, breezy conditions, lower daytime temperatures and a 30-percent chance of rain and thunderstorms.


With today's high temperature only predicted to reach 67 degrees, and 69 degrees the expected high on Thursday, this will be a significant change, the NWS says. Low temperatures on both days will be in the high forties.


The chance of thunderstorms will decrease on Thursday according to the NWS, with a 20-percent chance of showers throughout the day. Warmer daytime temperatures are expected on Friday, but a chance of showers Friday evening remains.


The weekend forecast is mostly sunny and warm, with highs in the upper 70s, the NWS states.


Remember to use caution when driving, the NWS advises, as even a small amount of rain will cause oil residue on roads to rise to the surface and cause slippery conditions.
