Cold storm moves in

A cold storm moved into the North State on Tuesday, bringing rain and snow showers. We'll see more through Wednesday, then it'll get even colder!

A cold front swept through the North State today, bringing showers and thunderstorms to the lower elevations, and snow to the mountains. The front has passed through, but now low pressure is rotating into northern California. It won't bring us steady Valley rain or mountain snow, but off-and-on showers through Wednesday. Cold air is pouring into northern California now, and snow levels will drop to around 2000' later tonight and stay there into Wednesday morning... and low elevations could potentially see a little snow by early Wednesday morning.

Skies will clear Wednesday night, and that's when it REALLY gets cold. Valley locations should drop into the 20's by early Thanksgiving morning, and some mountain locations (Alturas, Burney, Chester) could be in the single digits! Bundle up if you're doing a run before your Thanksgiving feast. We'll stay cold through this upcoming weekend.

Long range models are disagreeing upon the strength of storms coming our way next week, but they are aligned in saying that at least some some stormy weather is on tap. The GFS really wants to soak us, while the Euro is drier. Fingers crossed for the wetter solution!
