Cooler temperatures — and maybe some showers — headed to SoCal this weekend.
But the mercury will be a little lower here in the Peninsula.
Forecasters issued a moderate rain advisory today for the Peninsula and mountains south of Ventura. The advisory remains in effect for the remainder of the week, but precipitation is expected to decrease with the onset of a cold front this evening.
The National Weather Service in Oxnard is calling it the “wintry wisp” of winter, where rain showers are expected to break out late this evening into Monday night.
The National Weather Service is also warning of windier conditions today, with gusts to 65-70mph in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, gusts to 70-75mph in Ventura and Santa Barbara City, and gusts to 80mph in Los Angeles County.
Some of these winds are possible in San Diego County Sunday, according to the NWS.
The rain chance this evening comes after a chilly morning, with no sign of rain from the National Weather Service.
The Pacific Northwest is expected to get between 15-20 inches of rain for L.A., Ventura, and San Diego, for the entire week, according to forecasters today.
Rainfall will decrease later this week, and fall back to 6.7 inches by the end of the week.
