...Significant Weather Change This Weekend...

Big weather changes are in store for this weekend as a storm
pushes into the West, bringing periods of gusty winds, a sharp
drop in the temperatures, and chances for rain.

WINDS: Strong and gusty winds are anticipated Saturday, which
could continue into Sunday. Plan on impacts to air/road travel,
choppy lake conditions, and areas of blowing dust. Time to secure
those fall and Halloween decorations, especially the inflatable
ones. These winds will also bring increased fire weather concerns.
Please see the Red Flag Warning for additional details.

TEMPERATURES: A cooldown will begin on Saturday and continue
through early next week with high temperatures dropping a solid 20
degrees by Sunday-Monday. Frosts and freezes are likely for
outlying rural areas and suburban valleys Monday and Tuesday
mornings. Be sure to cover your sensitive vegetation if you`re
still enjoying those outdoor gardens.

RAIN: Best chances for rainfall will be north of I-80 Saturday
night into Sunday with lighter rain possible between I-80 and
