Today has been a cool but pleasant day. Unfortunately no valley rain but we have seen snow at high elevations in the mountains. Those snow elevations could drop to 4000 feet tonight in the Sierra-Cascades but will remain light. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect but only for Lassen and far eastern Plumas county. The WINTER STORM WARNING in our area is expired but remain in effect farther south in the Sierra and towards Tahoe. Tonight valley low will be in the upper-30s. This is chilly but warm enough to avoid frost.

Tomorrow we'll see highs in the upper-50s in the valley with mostly sunny skies. Only a stray snow shower or two possible in the Sierra with chances dropping off as the day goes on. Wind will also be on the stronger side with gusts up to 30 mph.

Sunday night will get cold with a valley freeze possible in some areas with the lightest winds. The freeze will not be a hard freeze but rather a light freeze with lows dipping near 32 degrees.

The following few days (Monday-Wednesday) will remain cool with valley highs in the upper-50s to low-60s and mostly sunny skies. This includes Veterans Day on Wednesday.
Overnight lows will remain a few degrees above freezing which means frost will be likely in the valley.

Thursday-Saturday will see another possible winter storm enter our region. The exact amounts of rain and snow are uncertain at this time. Showers and snow will be possible in the mountains with valley rain hard to tell for now. The one good thing is a weak atmospheric river looks to feed into this storm which could supply it with just enough extra moisture to bring some showers to the valley. My fingers are crossed for this.

A cold front has moved over northern California on this day before Thanksgiving, and it brought light rain and snow showers to the higher terrain, gusty wind and cooler air for all. Thanksgiving will still be breezy, but also mild and pleasant.
