to increase near the coast late.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Another cold weather system originating in western Alaska is
forecast to drop south into California on Thursday. This system
may result in the following weather hazards:

* Widely scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms with small
  hail. Best chance of thunderstorms will be across the North and
  East Bay.

* Widely scattered snow showers may occur in the hills above 1800
  feet on Thursday and Thursday evening. Minor accumulations are
  expected with just a dusting in most areas. Up to an inch of
  snow is possible in the Santa Lucia Mountains in Monterey
  County.

* Blustery conditions and low wind chills with locally strong
  northwest winds. Northwest winds will increase from late
  Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon. Strongest winds are
  expected along the coast and in the hills on Thursday afternoon
  and evening when gusts up to 40 mph are likely. Wind chills will
  be as low as the 20s to mid 30s by Thursday evening.

* Freezing temperatures: This system will bring in a reinforcing
  shot of cold air. Depending on how quickly winds subside on
  Thursday night, inland areas could see overnight lows drop
  slightly below freezing. Lows in the upper 20s are possible for
  inland areas late Thursday night and early Friday. Friday night
  is expected to be about as cold. Temperatures will begin to
  moderate by Saturday night.

Dry weather is expected over the weekend, along with slight
warming. Another cold weather system is forecast to arrive by
Monday. This system has the potential to produce widespread
precipitation, along with low snow levels.
