Posted: Apr 1, 2020 6:01 PM

Sunny to mostly sunny skies and warmer temperatures are on the way for your Thursday. Valley areas will start out in the 30's to 40's, and will end up in the mid 60's to low 70's during that time. Mountain areas will start out in the teens to 20's, and end up in the high 40's to mid 50's on Thursday. Gusty north winds can also be expected for your Thursday. Sustained winds will be up to around 15mph, with gusts up to around 30mph. We'll be staying dry and warm on Friday, but clouds will be increasing for the end of your work week.

The latest projections bring a sharp drop in temperatures and wet weather back to northern California this weekend. Showers will spread across our region on Saturday and are projected to continue through at least Monday. Light to moderate rain and snow showers can be expected from the first system on Saturday, with heavier amounts expected from the second system for the latter part of your weekend. Snow levels are currently projected to be down to around 4000' to 5000' on Saturday, and down to as low as 3500' on Sunday through Monday. Up to two feet of snow can be expected down to pass levels, and significant travel impacts are possible. The current projection for valley rain totals has lower elevations getting between a half an inch to 2 inches of rain from Saturday through Monday. Foothill areas may end up with more than 2 inches of rain. Valley areas will start out in the low to mid 40's this weekend, and will end up in the mid 50's to low 60's for your afternoons. Mountain areas will start out in the 20's to low 30's in the mornings, and end up in the 40's for your afternoons this weekend.

Models are keeping a decent chance for showers in your forecast on Monday, but showers will be lighter than what's expected for your weekend. There is a chance for some showers lingering into the middle of next week, but the more likely solution currently brings dry and warmer weather back to our region on Tuesday and Wednesday.
