Today will be a bit breezy with sustained winds at about 15-20 mph and highs reaching the 80s for many in the Valley. We stay sunny today but big changes are on the way!
Tomorrow we cool into the mid-70s with a few clouds moving in and then a light shower or two in the mountains as we head into the overnight hours.
Saturday - Monday a winter storm slides down the West Coast bringing widespread showers and heavy snow to the North State. I forecast the heaviest rain and snow to fall overnight Saturday into Sunday. Saturday will see light snow above 3,500 feet. Snow levels drop to 2,500 feet overnight Saturday and could briefly drop near 2,000 feet on Monday before raising back to 3,500 feet. There should be a dusting of snw at 2,000 feet, 4-8 inches of snow between elevations at 2,500 feet to 3,000 feet and 1-3 feet of snow for elevations above 3,500 feet. You can expect anywhere from a quarter inch to a whole inch of rain in the Valley in total, with foothills seeing up to 2 inches of rain. Winds could also be gusty during the storm gusting 40-60 mph in some parts of the Sierra and a few thunderstorms can not be ruled out on Sunday.
Tuesday quiet weather returns to the area with partly cloudy skies and high in the upper-50s.
