Posted: Mar 22, 2019 6:49 AM

Grab your umbrella, and be prepared for slick roads before you head out the door this morning. Showers will be returning to Northern California this morning, and spreading across our entire region today. Looks like we can expect showers to move through the Northern Mountains by 8am, and then spread into the valley by around 10am. Showers will continue to become stronger, and more widespread this afternoon. A Winter Weather Advisory will be in place for portions of the Sierra from 11am this morning until 5pm Saturday. The Sierra and Cascades will start to see showers early to mid afternoon. Snow levels will be down to as low as 4500' today, and then fall to around 4000' on Saturday. Temperatures have dipped into the mid to high 40's in the valley overnight, and into the 20's to 30's in the mountains this morning. Looks like you'll be wanting your umbrella and jacket today. Winds will be out of the South up to around 15mph. High temperatures will be cooler than Thursday. Valley areas are projected to climb into the mid 50's this afternoon, and mountain areas will end up in the 40's later today. Showers are expected to be heaviest this evening.

Scattered showers will continue on Saturday, but amounts will be much lower than Friday. Snow levels will dip to around 4000' in the Sierra and travel impacts are expected. Up to a foot of snow could fall from this system at the highest elevations, with up to 8 inches of snow down to around 5000'. Chain controls may be put in place for portions of the Sierra on Saturday. Temperatures will be below average on Saturday. Valley areas will end up in the high 50's, and mountain areas will still be in the 40's. Dry and warmer weather returns for your Sunday forecast. High temperatures will end up in the mid 60's in the valley on Sunday afternoon. The break from the wet weather will be shortlived as another wet system is projected to return to our region from the start to middle of next week. Models are hinting at a very wet pattern returning on Monday and lasting through Wednesday. High temperatures will be back in the mid 50's in the valley on Monday and will stay in that range for the next several days.

Thursday was the last fairly quiet weather day that we'll have in northern California as a series of storms will move our way through next week. Our first chance for rain and snow showers arrives Friday morning with a cold front.
