Mostly cloudy skies, scattered morning showers, and heavier afternoon rain and snow are all ahead for your Monday forecast. There will also be a very decent chance for valley, and foothill thunderstorms this afternoon. The snow levels will drop to around 3500 feet this afternoon. Between 4 to 6 inches of snow will fall down to around 6000 feet, with around a foot possible over the highest peaks through Tuesday morning. Mostly cloudy skies have helped to keep temperatures a little warmer overnight. Valley areas have only dipped into the mid to high 40's, and mountain areas have bottomed out in the low to mid 30's. Afternoon high temperatures are expected to be well below average. Valley areas are only projected to climb into the low to mid 50's, and mountain areas will be in the high 30's to mid 40's. Winds will be out of the South from 10 to 15mph. Stronger gusts will be possible with thunderstorms this afternoon, and hail is also likely in the event of a thunderstorm.
The potential for rain and snow showers will continue for the Northern Sierra through Tuesday morning, but the rest of the region will clear out tonight. Partly cloudy skies, dry conditions, and slightly warmer daytime high temperatures will be ahead for the next several days. Overnight lows will be much cooler as skies clear out, so make sure to bundle up in those chilly morning hours. High temperatures will be warmer than today, but will stay well below average for this time of year. There will not be any big changes expected from Tuesday through Saturday. The next likely chance for precipitation will return to the region in your upcoming Sunday forecast. I hope everyone stays safe in the very active weather ahead for today, and has a marvelous Monday!
