Sunny skies returned to the forecast after a rainy end to the work week. It was good to see some of the wet weather after a dry start to Winter. Sunday looks like another beautiful day, sunshine and mild temperatures, however a large WINTER STORM will impact California for the coming work week.  Clouds will thicken up Sunday night with perhaps a few showers coming in Monday morning.


The storm arrives on Monday and definitely looks significantly stronger and wetter than the last few that moved through recently. National Weather Service has issued WINTER STORM WATCH in effect from Monday evening through Tuesday evening for Western slope of the Sierra. Western Plumas County and Lassen Park should pick up some heavy snowfall.

Models are in good agreement on the heavy rain for Monday, with more moderate showers into Tuesday. It's looking like the Valley will see about 1-2" of rain for the 2-day span.

The heavier snow will impact more of the Mountains into Monday night and early Tuesday as colder air mixes in with the moisture. Snow levels looking like they'll start above 7000' on Monday but lower to 6000' by early morning Tuesday. Travel will be hazardous with several inches of snow on the ground and poor visibility with heavy, blowing snow. Total snow accumulations of 6-12 inches with localized amounts up to 24 inches are possible at the highest elevations.

The sunshine returns on Thursday as things dry out once again. Valley highs warming up and pushing around 60° quickly. We'll push towards the mid-60° range by the end of the work week!
