WATSONVILLE — After a lengthy dry spell, showers moved into the Monterey Bay Area on the first day of spring Monday. A dense layer of clouds dominated the skies Monday and by 2 p.m. sprinkles began falling while temperatures leveled off in the mid-60s.

By 4:30 p.m. those sprinkles gained in strength as umbrellas came out and motorists’ wiper blades flapped on.

Meteorologist Anna Schneider of the National Weather Service of Monterey said the Pajaro Valley will get showers and isolated thunderstorms today through Wednesday from a weather system coming in off the Pacific Ocean. Schneider said that light to moderate rain, that could be heavy at times, is expected today.

“There could be some strong winds as well on Tuesday and into the evening,” Schneider said.

The high today will be around 65 degrees. Winds could gust as high as 23 mph.

Schneider said a far more powerful weather system is stacking up to move into the region on Friday. She said that system will drive in a bigger punch as far as rain and wind but would most likely not deliver a risk of flooding.
