(Victor Valley)- – The last couple of days have been much cooler, with leaves starting to fall from trees around the valley and temperatures only reaching the upper 70s.  High Desert residents are pulling out sweaters and boots, and greeting the arrival of fall.

Now an early season storm could bring some rain to our area, and snow to the higher mountain locations.  A low pressure system has been working its way down from the northern part of the state and is expected to move into Southern California this afternoon and evening.  While the National Weather Service in San Diego is not forecasting wide spread rain, they do say we could see showers and thunderstorms from this system.

Today should be partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms across the Victor Valley.  Wind will be 15 to 20 mph from the west, with gusts to 25 mph. Daytime highs will be in the upper 70s.

The chance of showers increases to 40% overnight and 50% through tomorrow evening. Wind continues at 15 to 20 mph from the west, with gusts to 25 mph. Highs tomorrow will be in the mid to upper 60s as the storm moves through the area, with overnight lows in the 40s and 50s.

Snow levels Thursday night could lower to between 6500 and 7000 feet with a few inches of snowfall possible on the higher peaks, mainly above 7000 feet.

Everything should be cleared out by Friday. For the weekend high pressure builds once again which will bring clear skies and warmer temperatures. Daytime highs will be back in the upper 80s and low 90s by next Tuesday.
