The low pressure system sweeping across the Golden State is bringing heavy rain and snowfall to Northern California. The front will move through Riverside County late tonight but will not be providing as much moisture to the Southland.
A quick shower overnight is possible for the Coachella Valley but accumulation is not expected. The biggest impact for the desert will be gusty wind.
A Wind Advisory goes into effect at 7:00 p.m. this evening and remains in effect until 4:00 a.m. Friday. The advised area (Riverside County mountains, including the San Gorgonio Pass) will experience the strongest gusts, near 50 MPH. The lower desert could record gusts up to 30 MPH.
The front will have moved eastward by the time most are headed out the door in the morning. Mostly sunny skies will prevail for the end of the work week.
High pressure will build into the weekend with temperatures warming into the mid 70s by Sunday.
