Posted: Jan 8, 2019 6:49 AM

Get that umbrella handy, and layer up before you head out the door this morning. Heavy rain will be returning to Northern California today, and temperatures will be staying cool this afternoon. It's been mostly dry overnight, and the clouds overhead have helped it stay a little warmer this morning. Showers are starting to make their way into the Northwest corner of the state early today, and will spread across the entire region by late this afternoon. Showers will spread across the Northern zones of our area first, but will then make their way down to the South and East across the rest of our region today. Snow levels will be higher today, and are expected to stay above 6000'. High elevation snow is still expected to be heavy despite the high levels, and we could be looking at a foot to 2 feet of snowfall along higher peaks through Wednesday night. Temperatures have dipped into the mid to high 40's in the valley overnight, and into the low to mid 30's in the mountains this morning. Winds will be out of the South to 15mph this afternoon, with gusts up to around 25mph. Stronger winds will be returning tonight. High temperatures will top out in the mid 50's in the valley this afternoon, and in the low to mid 40's in the mountains. South winds will start to gust up to 50mph out of the South tonight, and that will prompt a Wind Advisory from 8pm this evening through 6pm Wednesday.

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in place for Sierra location above 6500' from midnight tonight through midnight on Wednesday. Snow levels will more than likely dip into the 4500' range on Wednesday as more heavy rain and snow fall across our region. The active weather will continue through late Wednesday night, but we should mostly dry up by Thursday. We can expect up to 2 inches of rain in the valley, and up to 5 inches of precipitation in some higher elevations. Looks like Thursday and Friday will be mostly dry, but models are split on what to expect this weekend .Previous runs had showers returning to Northern California on Saturday, but the latest are showing showers holding off until Sunday. We're going to keep tracking the latest conditions as new information is available, so stick with Action News Now for all of the details you need to be prepared for what's ahead.
