Storm Tracker Forecast: Feeling like spring for a few days with a winter storm on the horizon

Springlike weather the next few days but a winter storm brings big changes starting Monday.

Posted: Mar 20, 2020 6:06 AM

Today we've clear and sunny weather with highs reaching the mid-60s in the Valley and 50s in the mountains.

This weekend we see even more springlike warmth with highs in the low-70s both Saturday & Sunday across the Valley. Saturday will see complete sunshine but Sunday will start sunny and end cloudy. This is due two multiple approaching disturbances swinging clouds our way.

A small storm impacts central California from the Pacific but only swings a few showers our way on Sunday night into Monday morning. However, a winter storm from the Gulf of Alaska also moves in on Monday bringing widespread showers and plenty of snow Monday through Wednesday. I expect about 1-3 feet above 4000 feet with snow levels getting as low as 2000 feet on Wednesday morning. Valley rain will be mainly light so he main impact will really only be felt in the mountains. But Valley temperatures will cool significantly from high in the 70s on Sunday to the 50s on Tuesday. The heaviest precipitation from the storm will also happen on Tuesday.

Thursday we dry out with a return to sunshine but another winter system could move in the following weekend.
