Posted: Apr 6, 2018 6:37 AM

The wet weather is ramping up, and temperatures are becoming even cooler in your Friday forecast. Showers will quickly turn into heavier rain through the day today, and that heavy rain is prompting a Flood Watch across the majority of Northern California from this afternoon through Sunday morning. Rivers and streams will more than likely be swelling through the weekend. Mud slides and debris flows will also be a concern through the next few days. Looks like most areas will get between an inch and a half of rain to two and a half inches of rain in the valley. Some higher elevations could get upwards of 3 inches of rain through Sunday morning. Snow levels are up to around 8000' for the start of your Friday, and will stay well above pass levels through Saturday afternoon. We could see snow levels dip to around 4500' on Saturday evening, but moisture will be limited by that time. An inch or two of snow accumulation will be possible from Saturday night through early Sunday.

Temperatures are starting out in the high 40's to low 50's in the valley this morning, and in the high 30's to mid 40's in the mountains. Winds will be up to 20mph out of the South this afternoon, and we do have the potential for gusts up to around 30mph. High temperatures are projected to top out in the low 60's for the valley, and in the high 40's to mid 50's in the mountains. Temperatures will become slightly warmer on Saturday. Heavy rain will continue into the early part of the day on Saturday. Heavy rain will then turn into scattered showers towards the afternoon, and the potential for thunderstorms will return to the valley.

Valley areas are expected to be dry by Sunday morning, and limited showers will linger in the mountains. Looks like our region should be mostly dry by early afternoon on Sunday. Temperatures will end up in the high 60's to low 70's in the valley for the end of the weekend. Dry and even warmer weather is expected on Monday. Valley areas will are projected to warm into the high 70's to low 80's on Monday afternoon. Wet and cooler weather then returns for your Tuesday. Showers will be moderate and temperatures will end up back in the mid to high 60's in the valley. Another wet system will then brush through our area from Wednesday through early Thursday. Temperatures will become even cooler on Wednesday and are projected to top out in the low to mid 60's in the valley. Showers exit the region on Thursday, and we will dry out for Friday of next week.
