It may not snow in the East Bay this week, but it will feel like it should.
The National Weather Service is predicting that temperatures will dip into the low 30s the next three nights.
In Concord, the forecast is for overnight lows of 33, 30 and 31 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings.
In Fremont, residents will shiver through nights of 35, 32 and 32 degrees.
Even more temperate Berkeley doesn't get off the hook. The lows there are forecast to be 38, 35 and 35 the rest of this work week.
On top of the cold temperatures, rain is in the forecast for Wednesday afternoon, Wednesday evening and Thursday during the day.
If the air temperature dips below the freezing point of 32 degrees when the rain falls, there's always the possibility of snow.
National Weather Service forecasters say this week will bring some of the coldest air of the season.
However, they say moisture from these storms is limited, so precipitation will be on the lighter side. Nonetheless, snow levels could drop to 1,500 feet. That's less than halfway up Mount Diablo.
It is important to take special care of your pets during these cold days and nights. The ASPCA has some tips here.
