Beautiful Day

The sun is out and it's supposed to be 77 degrees for our high...and then the forecast---

... Major change in the weather pattern coming with valley rain
and mountain snow early next week... 

A cold low pressure system from the Gulf of Alaska will begin
dropping into the eastern Pacific this weekend. A cold front
associated with this low is forecast to move into northern
California Sunday night passing through the north state on Monday
and Monday night. This system will bring breezy winds... valley
rain and mountain snow between Sunday night and early Tuesday
morning. Subsequent systems may bring lighter amounts of precipitation
later in the week. 

Between Sunday night and early Tuesday... valley rains of up to a half inch
are expected. Roads which have been dry for months will likely
become very slick at times due to the build up of dirt and oils
over the Summer. Motorist should allow extra time for travel especially
during the Monday morning commute. Localized heavier rain is also
possible. Areas scarred from recent wild fires over the Summer
will be susceptible to debris flow. At the higher elevations... snow
accumulations of 6 to 12 inches are possible above 5500 feet.
Travel will become hazardous there due to slick roads and reduced
visibilities at times.

 Yikes! Suddenly it's Fall.

But we're not worried as we will be flying South to Disneyland on Wednesday AM and we will land at John Wayne International Airport where the temperature will be 79 degrees and the sun will be shining...all week long. We will have our son and girlfriend with us as well as the 'reason' for the trip; our twin 9 year old grandchildren.
