Posted: Jan 31, 2019 6:37 AM

Take advantage of the pleasant weather while it stick around today, as major changes are on the way for your Friday and weekend forecast. Skies are clear for the start of your Thursday, and are expected to stay sunny today. Temperatures have dipped into the low to mid 40's in the valley overnight, and into the 20's to 30's in the mountains this morning. Sunny skies, and North winds to around 10mph are expected through the day today. High temperatures will top out in the mid to high 60's in the valley again this afternoon, with 50's to 60's in the mountains later today. All around, today looks very pleasant.

Big changes arrive across Northern California on Friday as a very wet system moves into our region from the Pacific. Looks like you can expect lighter scattered showers in the morning, and then much heavier rain and snow by late Friday afternoon. Active winter weather has prompted the National Weather Service in Sacramento to issue a Winter Storm Watch from Friday night through Sunday night for areas above 5000'. Snow levels are starting out at around 5500', but will dip to around 4000' by Saturday night. Temperatures will top out in the mid 50's in the valley on Friday and then low to mid 50's for your weekend. The heaviest precipitation is expected to be on Friday night through early Saturday, but we will continue to have active weather through Monday. Some clearing may help to usher in the threat of thunderstorms in the valley on Saturday, and mountain snow will make travel dicey in higher elevations. Another wet system will arrive in our area on Sunday and last through Monday. Snow levels could dip to as low as 3000' on Sunday, which would mean snow in the upper foothills for the end of your weekend. Some models are now hinting at a dusting of snow down to as low as 1,500' on Monday as a cold front pushes through our area. Temperatures will top out in the high 40's in the valley on Monday. Dry and chilly weather returns on Tuesday and will likely last through the end of next week.
