Yesterday's storm is still with us today, bringing us more of the same, possibly with worse weather conditions as our low pressure system--meaning we're more susceptible to inclement weather--continues to drop, nearing the a record set back on January 27th in 1988. Because of the heightened intensity, there is more chance of tornadoes and water spouts off the coast... and, of course, pouring rain, mudslides and all the other weather-related drama.

As for rainfall, we're looking at one to two inches in the valleys and coastal areas and two to four inches in the mountains. Snow levels will be at 5,000 feet with 10 to 20 inches dropped today. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50s and then drop into the low 40s tonight.

A coastal flood warning and a high surf advisory are in effect, lasting through Friday morning, when showers are likely again (70% chance throughout the whole day), according to the National Weather Service. Friday night will be cloudy with a 50% chance of rain. Saturday will see decreasing clouds overhead with a 20% chance of rain. Then Saturday night through Monday, we should see a break in the rain before a 30% chance of rain looms over us on Monday night through Tuesday. On Tuesday night, a 20% of chance of rain before things start calming on Wednesday.
