Storm Tracker Forecast: Big changes on the way!

Dry and warm through Friday. Cooling down with a good chance for significant rain & snow this weekend.

Today will be another pleasant day with highs in the mid-70s and sunnshine. Tomorrow we could warm to near 80 degrees in the Valley with breezy weather settling in across the area.

Big changes are on the way this weekend. Highs never leave the 50s and rain will be possible in the Valley. This is all thanks to a winter storm sliding down the West Coast. I expect 0.4-0.7 inches of rain in the Valley, with high totals farther North, between Saturday and Monday. The heaviest rain and snow will fall on Sunday. Heavy snow will be likely in the mountains with significant amounts between 1-2 feet likely all the way down to 3500 feet. Snow levels drop from 6000 feet to 3500 feet on Saturday then when the heaviest snow is expected to fall (on Sunday), snow levels drop from 3500 feet to 2000 feet into the foothills. Light snow and rain showers are still possible on Sunday but will be very scattered. Snow levels Monday could drop a further 500 feet to 1500 feet.

Tuesday we dry out with a shower or two still possible farther south. We also warm back into the 60s.

Light and scattered rain and snow showers return for your weekend, but another warming trend looks likely for next week
