Widespread rain is expected to continue this morning with temperatures holding cold & steady in the 40s. SNow levels are now much higher (around 6-7,000 ft). The light rain will begin to tone down in the afternoon and clear by the evening hours as the low pressure system to our west moves south and away from us. Temperatures could reach the 50s today in the Valley.
Tomorrow the rain is gone and the sunshine is back with partly cloudy skies. Temperatures could reach the low 60s for many in the Valley. On Wednesday the system that gave us so much rain the last few days is much weaker and begins to move inland in SoCal. The could fling a stray shower or two in the far reaches to our South, with sunnier skies the farther North you are.
On Thursday, we start the day quiet, however our next large winter storm will begin to move in in the late evening hours giving some showers chances. This also brings temperatures back into the low-50s in the following days. This winter system will dominate our weather pattern on Friday and Saturday giving us widespread rain chances in the Valley and snow in the mountains. Rain amounts adn rainfall intensity are unceratin at this time, however it will be enhanced by an atmospheric river so that could further enchance rain and snow totals.
By next Sunday the system moves deeper into the Rockies with the rain chances leaving us. A return to partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 50s can be expected.
