Rain and high elevation snow return to the region today as a weak storm system tracks southward. Dry weather returns on Monday, which will be accompanied with breezy northerly winds.

Mainly dry weather is expected through the New Year with a chance of showers being possible for the Cascades. Wet weather may return for the northern half of the region for the weekend.

Rain is spreading inland this afternoon. The bulk of the rain will be this afternoon and evening before tapering off. Some snowfall in the higher elevations later this afternoon and evening may be just enough to cause some minor travel impacts for the western slopes. The snow will taper off from north to south late in the evening into early Sunday morning.

Dry weather persists into Tuesday, which will be accompanied with lighter northerly winds as high pressure builds over the region. Morning fog will be possible from around Sacramento southward on New Years. The next chance for showers could be for the Cascades-Shasta County on Wednesday as a weak disturbances slides north of the region and the tail end moves through the far northern end of the state.

It was a bright and breezy Friday for northern California, however the wind has been much stronger over Modoc County where a High Wind Warning is in effect through this evening. Stronger wind and cooler air will define our weather Saturday.
