Monday was a stormy day around northern California, with Valley rain & mountain snow! This will dry up overnight, and look for plenty of sunshine on Tuesday.
Low pressure from the Gulf of Alaska rotated right over the North State on Monday, bringing it's cold, wet weather with it. The Valley saw between 1/2" and 1 1/2" of rain, while snow levels in the mountains dropped down pretty low! It snowed down as low as about 2500' this afternoon on the Ridge, and the higher elevations saw some good totals... It didn't stick too well on the Ridge, mostly less than 1". As low pressure causing all of this moves to Arizona tomorrow, we'll see the sun return. The incoming airmass is a cold one, so Valley locations will be lucky to reach 60 Tuesday! With clear skies and that cold airmass still in place, Tuesday night/Wednesday morning will be the coldest morning of the season (so far)... Valley locations will be close to freezing! Protect your plants & pets.
High pressure will slowly warm us back up to near 70 by the end of the week. Our next storm is due in next Sunday... This will be the third Sunday in a row of stormy weather!
Long range computer models have to be taken with a grain of salt, but they're indicating the following week will be a stormy one. Let's hope they're right!
