Yet another storm is bringing rain to the North State Tuesday night, in separate pieces. A healthy band of rain will move in first, bringing us rain at a pretty good rate, but that should end near Midnight. Low pressure will swing in behind it early Wednesday morning, keeping the wet weather going, but not nearly as steady or heavy... just showers for most of the day Wednesday. With the cooler airmass we've brought in recently, the snow level will be around 3500'.
We'll get a break in the rain on Thursday, but it won't last long. With any clearing (and there won't be much in-between storms), we may see some early morning fog.
Our next storm arrives Friday, and doesn't look too strong... but will still bring us rain. The snow level will remain near 3500'.
After that, high pressure will begin to build back on in, shifting the storm track northward for a bit. We'll still be fairly cloudy on Saturday, with showers in the Siskiyous, but the rest of us should be dry. Skies will turn partly cloudy on Sunday and we'll see Valley temperatures warm into the 60's by next week. With a light north wind, fog shouldn't be too much of an issue.
