Storm Tracker Forecast: Cold and wet next week

Mild and sunny through the weekend then temperatures drop into next week with the chance for valley rain and mountain snow Tuesday-Friday.

Posted: Nov 22, 2019 6:11 AM

Today will be another quiet day with sunny skies, calm winds and highs reaching the mid-to-upper 60s in the Valley. Lows tonight could get chilly in the upper-30s yet again, for some in the Valley.

We look to warm a few degrees over the weekend staying sunny with highs reach the low-70s in the North Valley and the upper-60s in the Central Valley.

There is a large cooldown on Monday with highs dropping 5-10 degrees and a few clouds moving in making for mostly sunny skies. We will also see breezier conditons which will cause elevated fire weather concerns, especially due to significantly dry fuel and humidities dropping into the 20s maybe even the teens for some.

Tuesday we see another huge shift in our weather pattern as a very strong low moves into the area from Canada. This will bring really cold air with it and snow for the mountains and rain for the Valley. We're expecting 2-3 inches of snow at pass levels with trace amounts of snow as low as 2500 feet. Rain accumulations could also reach half an inch to an inch in the Valley with the Western part of Northern California looking to get the most precipitation. Highs will also drop into the 50s and 40s. The cold weather and chance for rain and snow will last through Friday. If you are traveling through the mountains for Thanksgiving, expect delays.

Stronger winds are prompting a Wind Advisory in the valley today, and driving elevated fire danger for your Tuesday. We'll also have the chance for showers and thunderstorms in the Sierra and foothills. A big warming trend is ahead in your extended forecast.
