Scattered rain and snow showers will be possible throughout your Tuesday, but will mostly be limited to the mountains. Snow levels have dipped to around 3000' overnight in the Northern Mountains, and down to around 4000' in the Sierra. Snow showers have been most prevalent in the Northern Mountains this morning, but the Sierra will have a better chance for showers lingering into the afternoon. Mostly dry conditions are expected for the valley, with only a 30 percent chance of light showers passing through. Temperatures have dipped into the low to mid 40's in the valley, and into the high 20's to high 30's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures will climb into the high 50's to low 60's in the valley, and into the low 40's to low 50's in the mountains. Winds will not be as strong as yesterday, and will mostly top out at around 10mph out of the South.
Partly cloudy skies will linger across the region over the next few days, but temperatures will warm up through the end of the week. Valley areas will climb back into the high 60's on Wednesday, and back into the low 70's by Thursday. Temperatures will not change much through Saturday. A very modest drop in temperatures is expected for Sunday, before valley areas fall back into the mid 60's by Monday. The next chance for showers will more than likely hold off until early next week. I hope everyone stays safe on the slick roads this morning, and has a great Tuesday!
