Colder-than-average temperatures accompanying rain across the Bay Area could spoil some outdoor plans Sunday, but Memorial Day looks dry, forecasters said Saturday. A rain system will bring periodic showers to the region beginning around sunrise Sunday and last through most of the day, said National Weather Service meteorologist Ryan Walbrun. “One bit of good news is that it does look dry for Monday, but tomorrow looks showery and abnormally cold,” he said. With high temperatures in the mid-60s, the air will be about 15 degrees cooler than normal for this time of year. Most areas could receive a tenth to a quarter of an inch of rain, Walbrun said. Although Sunday’s rain won’t be very heavy, the Russian River is still recovering from intense rainfall that caused severe flooding earlier in the winter. Sonoma County officials are discouraging water activities on the river during Memorial Day weekend, delaying the start of the summer season.

Cold lake weather forecast 7 day
A potent storm will continue to deliver a mix of snow, ice, rain, floods and possibly some tornadoes to much of the central and eastern U.S. into Thursday, which will be followed by yet another blast of Arctic cold by week's end. About 55 million people live where floods could occur on Thursday. On Wednesday, the storm dumped heavy snow over the upper Midwest, closing schools and wreaking travel havoc on the roads and at the airports. Some of the heaviest snow fell in Iowa and Wisconsin, where 6 to 8 inches of snow was reported, according to the Weather Channel. The Weather Channel has named the system Winter Storm Indra. Even where the snow had stopped falling in the Dakotas and Minnesota, howling winds led to whiteout conditions. A blizzard warning for this "ground blizzard" was in effect until early Thursday. South of the snowy weather, heavy rain will pelt much of the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic on Wednesday and into Thursday.

Windy and rainy conditions will persist throughout Sunday at the Shore, according to the National Weather Service in Mount Holly. The amount of rainfall — the Shore could get a ½ inch of rain by nightfall — coupled with high tides has led the service to issue a coastal flood advisory for the coastal regions of Ocean County. The flood advisory means that minor tidal flooding is expected that could result in some road closures, especially the most vulnerable roadways, according to the service. The advisory is in effect from noon to 6 p.m., which coincides with the time of the high tide along the Barnegat Bay. The service has also issued a wind advisory for much of Ocean and Monmouth counties, including Freehold, Sandy Hook, Jackson and Long Beach Island. Wind gusts could top 45 miles-per-hour. The wind should begin to weaken by mid-day, the Service reports. Middletown: Cop saves woman from … [Read more...] about NJ weather: Shore under coastal flood, wind advisories
Story highlights The Old Farmer's Almanac predicts an "exceptionally cold" winter in 2017 The almanac "is to meteorology what astrology is to astronomy," says a critic A version of this story was originally published on CNN.com in 2015. (CNN)The story goes that, in 1815, Old Farmer's Almanac founding editor Robert B. Thomas was interrupted by a boy wondering what to put down for the weather forecast of July 13, 1816. In some versions, Thomas is ill with the flu. In others, he's simply preoccupied with other work. Whatever the reason, the entry for that day -- perhaps Thomas' suggestion, perhaps one from an impish interloper -- was supposedly "rain, sleet and snow." In July. It so happened that 1816 was "the year without a summer," thanks to the eruption of Mount Tambora, and it did, indeed, sleet and snow that season, even in July. The forecast is alleged to have made the almanac's reputation. It's a nice story, though even the almanac itself is skeptical of its truth. … [Read more...] about Should you believe the Old Farmer’s Almanac’s forecast?
