Snow levels will be down to 5000 feet on Wednesday, and could dip to as low as 4000 feet on Thursday. Valley areas are projected to get less than an inch of rain from Wednesday through Thursday. Most mountain areas will get well over an inch of rain, with some portions of the Sierra expecting upwards of 5 inches of precipitation. Higher peaks could get upwards of two and a half feet of snow through Thursday afternoon.

    Dry weather is expected to return late Thursday, and last through Saturday evening. Temperatures will stay very chilly during that time. Low temperatures will end up in the 30's for the end of the week in the valley, and in the 20's for mountain areas. Highs will top out in the mid 50's in the valley, with 40's in the mountains.
