Posted: Mar 23, 2020 5:29 AM

Today will be another good day! The system dumping rain in SoCal will have little effect on us but the storm on the Canadian coast is moving south, towards Northern California. A frontal boundary approaches us by the late afternoon which could provide enough lift to form a few Valley thunderwstorms and a few light mountain snow showers. Highs still reach the upper-60s for most today.

Snow levels drop to 4000-2500 feet on Tuesday. I've forecasted heaviest mountain snow and Valley rain to impact the North State Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning. The chance for valley thunderstorms will also stretch into Tuesday & Wednesday. Most mountain locations should rack up 8-12 inches of snow with valley locations getting about 0.25-0.5 inches of rain. These totals indicate it is not a very significant system but at least it will wet us down a bit. Valley highs only reach the mid-50s Tuesday &Wednesday.

Thursday a few lingering showers could be possible in the mountains with mostly sunny skies in the Valley and highs back in the low-60s. Friday & Saturday will see "nice" weather. Highs in the 60s and partly cloudy skies. A few showers in the mountains Friday & Saturday. Its possible a few of those could make it down into the North Valley, but overall, should stay mostly dry. Highs could reach the 70s by Sunday.

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.
