Storm Tracker Forecast: More winter weather is on the way

Scattered rain and snow showers are lingering into the early portion of your Thanksgiving day and another winter storm is on the way for your weekend.

Posted: Nov 27, 2019 6:07 PM

More rain and snow are ahead for Northern California tonight and tomorrow, but it's not expected to be as heavy as what we had yesterday or this morning. The Winter Storm Warning has now been downgraded to a Winter Weather Advisory and will stay in effect through 10pm tonight in the mountains of Shasta County. The Winter Weather Advisory is set to continue through 7pm tomorrow evening for portions of the Sierra and will be in effect for areas above 2500'. Snow levels have gradually been lifting through the day today and are expected to mostly extend from around 2500' upwards for tonight and tomorrow. We do still have a slight chance for a dusting of snow in the North end of the valley through Thursday morning, but elsewhere valley areas will just have scattered rain showers and a slight threat of thunderstorms. Temperatures are expected to be cold overnight and will stay chilly for your Thanksgiving day forecast. Valley areas are projected to dip into the 20's to 30's overnight, and mountain areas will end up in the single digits to low 20's on Thanksgiving day morning. Afternoon high temperatures will only top out in the mid 40's to low 50's in the valley tomorrow, and mountain areas will top out in the 20's to 30's. Travel conditions will continue to be impacted over our region. Most of the showers are projected to taper off by Thanksgiving afternoon, and we're expecting to stay dry on Friday. Temperatures will be even colder on Friday morning, and will stay chilly on Friday afternoon.

Another winter storm is projected to impact Northern California from Saturday morning through at least the start of next week. A Winter Storm Watch is set to go into effect on Friday night and stay in place through Sunday morning. Snow levels will start out low on Saturday morning, but are expected to rise by the afternoon. Looks like we could see snow down to around 1500' on Saturday morning, and will then lift to around 3000' by the evening. Pass levels will get more than enough snow to cause travel impacts in the mountains, so drivers will still need to use extreme caution this weekend. The rain and snow will continue on Sunday, but snow levels will continue to rise compared to Saturday. The current projected snow level for Sunday is between 4000' to 5000'. Wet weather will continue into your Monday forecast, but temperatures will be warmer than your weekend. Valley areas will climb back into the low to mid 50's for the start of next week. Cloudy skies and mostly dry weather is projected for Tuesday, but then another wet system may bring more rain and snow to our region on Wednesday.

Warm temperatures and a Red Flag Warning for high fire danger are ahead for our region today. The heat ramps up this weekend and that will prompt an Excessive Heat Watch for the valley and foothills.
