More wet weather is ahead for your Thursday forecast. Light showers are returning to most of the region this morning, with much more significant precipitation expected for the afternoon. Rain is expected in the valley, and a mix of rain and snow will be in store for the mountains. Snow levels will fall from 6500 to 5500 feet in the Northern Sierra, while the Northern Mountains will drop to around 5000 feet. There will likely be around 2 inches of snow at pass levels, with upwards of 5 inches of snow on Lassen Peak.
Temperatures are starting out in the high 40's to low 50's for the valley, and mid 30's to mid 40's in the mountains. High temperatures are projected to be cooler than Wednesdays, with low to mid 50's in the valley, and mid 40's to low 50's in the mountains. Winds will be up to around 10mph out of the South.
Cloudy, but dry conditions are ahead for your Friday forecast. There will be a slight chance of showers lingering, but the next system will arrive on Friday night. That system looks to be the most impressive of the 3 systems this week, and will last through Saturday. Sunny skies, and dry conditions will return to the north state on Sunday. I hope everyone stays safe on the wet roads, and has a great Thursday!
