Drying out today, but heavy showers return late week

Drying out for your Tuesday, but very heavy showers are ahead

Posted: Jan 16, 2018 7:24 AM

Wet roads across Northern California for the start of your Tuesday, but showers are already heading East this morning. The potential for showers will be limited to your morning commute in the valley, but some scattered showers could linger into the early afternoon across the Sierra. Precipitation amounts have not been very impressive, with around a quarter inch being the average overnight. Snow stayed above pass levels, and is not expected to be a major impact today. Temperatures are starting out in the high 40's to low 50's in the valley, and in the id 30's to mid 40's in the mountains. Winds will be up to 10mph out of the Southeast today. High temperatures are projected to climb into the mid to high 50's in the valley today, and into the mid 40's to low 50's in the mountains.

Dry and slightly warmer conditions are ahead for your Wednesday, and some sunshine is expected to break through the clouds. The next wet system will arrive along the coast Wednesday night, and will spread across all of Northern California on Thursday. Snow levels will be much lower with the next system, and are expected to bottom out at around 4000' on Thursday. Snow levels are expected to dip further on Friday, and could end up as low as 2500'. Up to 2 feet of snow will be possible for Thursday into Friday. Most areas will dry out by early Saturday.

Saturday will be a nice break from the wet weather, but that break is expected to be short lived. Showers will return on Sunday, and last into Monday. Even more wet weather is likely next week.

A hot week will transform into an even hotter weekend over northern California as high pressure stays in control of our weather. No rain is in the forecast, but it will cool a bit by late next week.
