More sizzle in the weather forecast still... but then... rain?
Tropical Cyclone Kay could bring rain to the Tri-Counties this coming weekend.
The heat wave gripping the Central and South Coasts is still expected to hang on for a few more days, keeping high temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above normal for this time of year. But then, there's some possible rain in the forecast.
There’s a Flex Alert in place again until 9 p.m. Wednesday night, calling on people to limit electricity use. State power officials say the state was on the verge of rolling blackouts Tuesday night when they sent out an emergency phone text asking people to help. They say usage immediately dropped, easing the crisis.
Meteorologists say we’ll see cooling on Saturday, when the remnants of what’s now Tropical Cyclone Kay stalls off the Southern California coast. In fact, they say we could see a quarter to three quarters of an inch of rain, with more than an inch in our mountains.
