Get that umbrella ready and give yourself extra time to get to where you're going today. Heavy rain overnight is leaving roads slick for the start of your Thursday. Snow levels have lifted to above 6000', and we're mostly dealing with rain this morning. Snow levels will be dropping through the day as a cold front moves in, and could dip to as low as 4000' by this afternoon. There will also be a decent potential for thunderstorms in the valley today and even a chance for a tornado with the current conditions. A Flood Warning is in place for the valley and recent burn scars through 7:30pm tonight. A Wind Advisory will be in place through 6am Friday, as we have the potential for gusts upwards of 50mph out of the South in the valley today. The Winter Storm Warning has been extended through early Saturday morning across the Sierra due to lowering snow levels, and heavy snow projected through the end of the week. Temperatures have dipped into the high 30's to mid 40's in teh valley overnight, and into the 30's for most mountains areas. Winds will be out of the South from 10 to 30mph, with the potential for gusts up to 55mph today. High temperatures will top out in the low to mid 50's in the valley, and into the 30's to mid 40's in the mountains this afternoon. Snow levels are starting out high, but will become much lower later today. Heavy mountain snowfall is expected for tonight through at least early Saturday morning. Rain will be heavy in the valley this morning, and will then become more scattered this afternoon. If thunderstorms do develop, we can expect localized heavy rain and the potential for hail.

Rain and snow showers will persist across Northern California on Friday, but they are not expected to be as heavy as today. The biggest impacts will be from heavy mountain snow in the Sierra, while valley areas have lighter showers moving through. The potential for light to moderate showers will persist through your weekend, and temperatures will stay in a similar range to today. Looks like we can expect sunny and dry weather for the start of next week, abut another chance for active weather will be returning on Wednesday.
