Today will be cold, wet and you may even see snow. If you're heading out the door, grab the coat and the umbrella. We have a good rain chance through the morning with snow possible before sunrise in he North Valley. A Winter Weather Advisory is currently in place above 4,000 feet in the Sierra until 10pm today. Expect reduced visibilities and slippr road conditions in the mountains. Accumulations of 5-10 inches are expected with localized amounts as high as 18 inches. 2-4 inches could be seen as low as 3,500 feet with snow flurries possible all the way down to Redding before the sun rises. Today's highs are also going to be cold, only reaching the 40s.

Another round of showers move in tomorrow with the bulk of the showers in North Valley with snow in the Sierra, Cascades and Coastal Ranges. On Friday, it will be dry for most with highs in the low-o-mid 50s. Lingering snow is possible in the mountains with a chance for a light shower or two in the North Valley.

The next big system moves in on Saturday bringing widespread showers and snow which can be heavy at times. The showers remain on Sunday but begin to move out on Monday. Fog could become a concern later next week with overnight lows getting back into the 30s by Sunday or Monday night. Christmas Eve looks to be cold with highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s with isolated rain chances.

A welcome cooling trend is ahead through Friday, but dry, warmer and windy conditions will bring elevated fire danger this weekend.
