Storm Tracker Forecast: Late-season soaker today

Showers, thunderstorms, high elevation snow, and breezy weather are in my forecast for the next few days.

Big changes ahead for your day today. Cooler weather with the chance for showers. Highs only in the upper-60s to low-70s today. Breezy weather, especially in the afternoon, will be likely.

A late season system is spinning just off the coast today and will swing a cold front through the area today, with a line of rain along it. Scattered showers will continue after the frontal passage into tomorrow and a maybe even a few more isolated hsowers on Wednesday. 0.10-0.25 inches will fall in the central valley with 0.25 to 0.60 inches of rain to fall in the north valley. I expect up to an inch in the foothills and up to an inch and a half in the mountains. A few inches of snow will also be possible above 6500 feet (mostly on Tuesday) with up to a foot of snow on Lassen peak above 10,000 feet. Thunderstorms will also be possible in the Valley and in the Foothills on Tuesday.

Thursday & Friday a warming trend will settle in as we warm into the mid-70s on Thursday then into the 80s on Friday, possibly lasting into Saturday with more sunshine.

Another late-season system could be in the works for Sunday and next Monday with more rain and cooler weather in the forecast.

Warm & breezy conditions are ahead for your final day of the summer season. Air quality is a bit more impacted this morning, but we could see some improvement in that today. We'll also be cooler and have a chance for showers returning to the coast later this week.
