Storm Tracker Forecast: Showers return in your weekend forecast

We'll be mostly dry and mild in your Friday forecast, but light showers are expected to return this weekend.

Posted: Mar 26, 2020 6:06 PM

We had mostly sunny skies across the majority of northern California on Thursday, but scattered rain and snow showers did return to portions of the Sierra and Foothills as expected this afternoon. The potential for showers will diminish tonight, and we'll be dry for the start of your Friday. Temperatures topped out in the 50's to low 60's in the valley this afternoon, while we mostly saw 40's in the foothills and mountains. Winds have been up to around 10mph out of the north.

Chilly temperatures are expected for the start of your Friday and we could be dealing with patchy frost in the valley tomorrow morning. Temperatures will dip nto the low to mid 30's in the valley and foothills overnight, while mountain areas will be starting out in the teens to 20's on Friday morning. Skies will be mostly sunny through the day and high temperatures are projected to be a degree or two warmer than Thursday on Friday afternoon.

A wet system dropping down from the north will start to spread scattered showers into the north state on Friday night. The best chance for showers on Friday night will be in areas as far south as Shasta County. Showers will then become more widespread on Saturday. Rain and snow totals are expected to stay light, with most of the vally only expecting to see up to a quarter of an inch of rain. Snow levels will be down to as low as 3000' on Saturday, but will climb into the 4000' to 5000' range by Saturday afternoon. Snow levels will stay in the 4000' to 5000' range on Sunday. We're only expecting to see up to around 4 inches of snow above 4500' this weekend. Temperatures will top out in the mid to high 50's in the valley on Saturdy and are then expected to climb back into the low to mid 60's on Sunday. Mountain areas can expect high temperatures in the 40's both days this weekend.

Models are hinting that the potential for showers could persist into Monday, but the projections are fairly split at this time. What does look likely is that temperatures will be slightly warmer for the start of your work week, and we can expect a modest warming trend with dry weather by the middle of next week. Valley areas could return to the 70's as early as Tuesday, but will more than likely stay in the high 60's. Dry weather with high temperatures in the 70's does look more likely by Wednesday of next week.
