Storm Tracker Forecast: Sunny skies before wet weather returns

We've got more wet weather in store for the end of December and for the start of January. Highs remain in the 50s all week with some nights dipping below freezing.

Posted: Dec 27, 2020 5:56 PM

Today we saw mid-50s for highs and some sunshine in the morning with partly cloudy skies the rest of the day. Once the sun sets, clouds will move in but rain & snow will only be seen down towards Sacramento. If we see anything tonight, it will only be our counties farthest south and it will be

A low-pressure system in the Pacific will move inland into SoCal Sunday night. This will bring a slight chance for drizzle to our southern counties Sunday night. Our northern counties will likely see nothing. The farther south you are, such as Sacramento, the better chance you will see something.

Snow levels will be irrelevant in the Klamath mountains and Cascades as the rain & snow will not likely make it that far north. Snowfall will havever be possible in the Sierra with snow levels around 3,000-4,000 feet. A deep trough of low pressure will allow for snow levels to get this low and for valley highs to be in the low-50s.

Monday and Tuesday will be a nice, sunny days across most of our region as a small ridge of high pressure shifts over us. Valley highs will be in the mid-50s.

Another wet system moves in Wednesday. Rain will be possible Wednesday night into a part of Thursday. Hopefully by Thursday night most of the rain will clear so you can enjoy your News Years Eve outdoor plans.

Friday will mean the start of a new year and more seasonable weather. Highs will be in the mid-50s with partly cloudy skies.

More wet & snowy weather returns to our region next weekend.
