Looks like it's not a bad idea to keep your umbrella handy on your way out the door this morning. More scattered showers are looking likely for your Friday morning, but most of the active weather will be in the mountains after the morning commute. A Flood Warning is still in place for portions of the Sacramento River this morning, but that could be removed after 9am. A Winter Weather Advisory will be staying in place through 10am in the Sierra, but that will be issued again at 10pm tonight. That Winter Weather Advisory will stay in place through 10pm Saturday. Scatttered showers are lingering across our region for the start of your Friday forecast, and the best chance for valley showers looks to be before 11am. Sierra showers will be likely through the day. Snow levels are down to around 4500' for your Friday forecast, but will be much lower on Saturday. Temperatures have dipped into the mid 40's in the valley overnight, and into the 20's to 30's in the mountains this morning. Winds will be up to 10mph out of variable directions through the day. High temperatures will top out in the low to mid 50's in the valley, and in the 30's to 40's in the mountains this afternoon.
More widespread showers, and lower snow levels are on tap for your Saturday. Snow could fall to as low as 1500', and that will cause major travel impacts in the Northern Mountains, and could cause travel issues in the foothills. Rain and snow amounts do not look all that impressive, but roads will be slick. Some showers will linger into your Sunday forecast, but most of Northern California will dry out by Sunday afternoon. Don't forget to set your clocks forward an hour on Saturday night. Monday looks dry across all of Northern California, but another weak wet system will brush through our region on Tuesday. Latest models are calling for dry weather from Wednesday through the end of next week!
