Rain totals from Monday night through Tuesday morningshould be fairly light, but we'll take any and all moisture. The entire region should pick up around 0.25-0.50" by the time the rain wraps up closer to Noon on Tuesday. Probably won't see too much snow developing with this system, but should pick up around 3-6inches early Tuesday morning as temperatures get a little cooler.


Tuesday morning turns to more scattered shower activity, with showers tapering off closer to the midday. Should get a little bit of sunshine Tuesday afternoon and into Wednesday's forecast also. We get a quick break from the wet weather before a more impressive storm system impacts the North State for Thursday and Friday.

This second storm wave should produce some better rain and snow across the region. It definitely looks like it is carrying quite a bit of moisture with it, but also much colder air which will produce some heavy snow across the mountains. Winter Storm Watch goes into effect Thursday afternoon and remains until Friday afternoon. Areas above 4000' are looking at picking up between 8-12" with possible higher amounts of 18-24" on the highest peaks.

Snow levels will be around 4000-5000' Thursday night, but could drop as low as 3000' into early Friday morning. Valley should get close to 1.00" of rain from Thursday and Friday. Precip estimates are looking good with the second storm, more than double what the early work week storm will produce.
