Weather stays wet

It was wet and windy around the North State today. The wet weather will wind down overnight, but there's plenty more headed our way next week!

Steady rain came down for a while today, but it didn't last too long. Still, we saw some much-needed rain... and should continue to see off-and-on showers overnight as another piece of energy rotates in. Tomorrow should start with scattered showers, but those should dry up before noon, and we might even see a little afternoon sunshine as this storm moves east. Snow levels should remain close to 4500' overnight and tomorrow morning.

South winds gusted 25 to 35 mph in the Valley today, but should subside overnight.

Saturday will be dry with a mix of sun and clouds, as we'll be in-between storms.

Our next storm arrives Sunday. It doesn't look as big as our current storm does, but will still make for a wet Sunday. Snow levels should again be near 4500', but there won't be much wind with this one... it doesn't have much of a surface low with it. A few showers could linger into Monday, but not much.

Tuesday looks dry with partly cloudy skies. Another weak bit of moisture will bring us showers on Wednesday, but nothing too big.

A potentially bigger storm will arrive Thursday. Rain amounts look similar to today, but models are currently suggesting it could have a lot of wind. That's about a week away, so a lot can change, but it's something I'll keep an eye on for the next few days.

The overall pattern for December is very promising. I don't see any major wet storms coming our way, but with the jet stream remaining pointed close to northern California for much of this month, we should see plenty of medium sized ones. Let's fill those lakes!
