The rain and snow from the last few days has finally fizzled out, and we're staying mostly dry for your Friday! There will still be a chance for some scattered showers in the mountains today, but amounts to not look impressive. New travel impacts are not likely today, but we could see issues when the rain and snow return this weekend. Partly cloudy skies are expected across most areas of Northern California today, and winds will stay on the lighter side. Winds may get up to around 10mph out of the Southeast, but are not expected to be stronger than that. Snow could fall to as low as 3000' today, but the amounts will be very small. Temperatures have dipped into the 30's to 40's in the valley overnight, and into the 20's to 30's in the mountains for your Friday morning. High temperatures are projected to end up in the mid 50's to low 60's in the valley this afternoon, and into the 40's for most mountain areas. Showers will return to portions of Northern California late tonight, and will then spread across our entire region by Saturday morning.
Wet weather looks likely on Saturday, but the heaviest rain and snow showers are expected to wrap up by mid afternoon. Snow levels will be in the 4000' range in the Sierra, but down to around 3000' in the Cascades and Northern Mountains. Temperatures will not change much through your weekend. Valley areas will top out in the mid to high 50's on both Saturday and Sunday. Showers will not be as widespread on Sunday, but will still be possible across Northern California. Looks like we'll be getting a break from the wet weather on Monday, but another wet system will be arriving in our area on Tuesday. Rain and snow will be likely from Tuesday through early Thursday.
