Posted: Dec 8, 2018 9:56 PM

A WEAK COLD FRONT IS KNOCKING ON OUR DOOR IT WILL ARRIVE TOMORROW AND BRING US CLOUDS, COOLER TEMPERATURES AND A LITTLE BIT OF RAIN AND MOUNTAIN SNOW.

OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW IT IS COOLING OFF QUICKLY WITH THE SUN HAVING GONE DOWN. RIGHT NOW IN THE 50'S IN THE VALLEY AND MUCH COOLER IN THE MOUNTAINS. EXPECT PATCHY FROST IN THE VALLEY TONIGHT AND FREEZING TEMPERATURES IN THE MOUNTAINS ONCE AGAIN OVER NIGHT.

WINDS ARE MOSTLY CALM AND DROPPING DOWN OUT OF THE MOUNTAINS AND THIS MAY ALLOW ALSO FOR SOME PATCHY FOG TO DEVELOP. NORTH OF SACRAMENTO IT WILL BE PATCHY AND THIN--NOT WIDESPREAD. SOUTH OF SACRAMENTO DENSE FOG IS EXPECTED IN THE VALLEY TOMORROW MORNING. BEFORE LIFTING IN THE AFTERNOON.

SO SUNDAY CLOUDS MOVE IN WE'LL GET SOME LIGHT SHOWERS SUNDAY NIGHT AND INTO MONDAY MORNING. THEN ANOTHER WEAK STORM ARRIVES ON WEDNESDAY.

SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT IT. THERE'S THE STORM LURKING OFFSHORE. NOTICE AS IT MOVES TOWARD THE COAST HOW THIN IT IS AND ONCE IT ARRIVES ONSHORE THERE REALLY ISN'T MUCH LEFT TO IT.

BY MONDAY EARLY IN THE MORNING IT WILL BE PASSING OVERHEAD AND ONCE IT TURNS TO DAYLIGHT HOURS MOST OF US WILL HAVE SEEN A LITTLE BIT IF RAIN OR MOUNTAIN SNOW. BY MONDAY AFTERNOON THE STORM HAS MOVED ALONG INTO THE SIERRA AND FALLEN APART BEFORE THE NEXT SYSTEM BEGINS TO ARRIVE BY TUESDAY NIGHT.

HOW MUCH PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED? NOT MUCH AND THESE NUMBERS MAY BE A BIT OVERDONE FOR THE VALLEY, AND ONCE AGAIN ALL OF THIS IS MOSTLY SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY MORNING.

SO HERE'S YOUR FORECAST THEN IN THE WESTERN MOUNTAINS INCREASING CLOUDS TOMORROW AND POSSIBLE SHOWERS OR LIGHT SNOW. SNOW LEVELS AROUND 4000 FEET. INCREASING CLOUDS TO THE EAST WITH YOUR HIGHS IN THE 40'S IN THE EASTERN MOUNTAINS. IN THE VALLEY CLEAR TONIGHT AND INCREASING CLOUDS TOMORROW. A LITTLE COOLER AS WELL WITH TEMPERATURES STAYING IN THE 50'S.

SO SHOWERS SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY MORNING. ANOTHER WEAK STORM ON WEDNESDAY AND ANOTHER ONE LATER IN THE WEEK. IT IS ABOUT 8-9 DAYS THAT POSSIBLE STRONGER STORMS MAY MOVE IN AND OF COURSE WE'LL KEEP AN EYE ON THAT AS THAT POSSIBLY DEVELOPS.
