Changes are coming by the end of the week into the weekend. Last night's long range computer forecast models continue to hint at a fairly deep and cold mid and upper level low trough of low pressure diving southward and into California by Sunday. 

The US GFS model seems to be the odd man out as it digs the upper level storm into the heart of the nation instead of along the West Coast as does the Canadian and the European. A lot of uncertainty here so take this with a grain of salt. 

With this event still a week out its way too early to get too excited about the specifics yet. However October begins on Thursday and the jet stream is increasingly becoming more active with time. So climatologically speaking this system will not be all that unusual. 

Several of them are also hinting at the possibility of moisture getting draw northward into the Desert Southwest from a Tropical system south of Baja. 

Notice the temperature drop from the first of October compared to the end of October.
