Wet & windy for your Wednesday

Scattered showers, thunderstorms, and gusty South winds are all ahead for your Wednesday

Posted: Mar 6, 2019 6:32 AM

Grab your umbrella, and be prepared for travel impacts across Northern California today. Heavy rain has resulted in some minor flooding and slick roads overnight. Ponding water on roads is possible across many areas today.. The Flood Watch will be in place for the valley and foothills through Thursday morning, and the Winter Storm Warning will stay in place for the Sierra through 10am Thursday. Snow levels have stayed higher with this storm system and are mostly just down to around 5500'. Gusty winds, scattered showers, and the potential for thunderstorms are all ahead for today. Thunderstorms may produce small hail, and result in heavy localized rain this afternoon. That could result in some additional areas of flooding later today. Temperatures have only dipped into the low to mid 50's in the valley overnight, and into the 30's for most mountain areas. Winds are out of the Southeast to around 20mph this morning, but could strengthen to around 30mph this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to end up in the mid to high 50's in the valley and into the 40's in the mountains this afternoon.

Showers will mostly be lighter and scattered tonight. Light and scattered showers will continue to be possible over the next few days, and the projection for rain totals are far from impressive. Looks like the majority of showers will wrap up on Thursday evening, but we'll still have a chance for scattered sprinkles in some areas on Friday. A weak wet system will bring very modest rain and snow to our region on Saturday. Mostly dry weather returns in your Sunday forecast, but skies will still be cloudy. The latest models are showing dry weather ahead for the start of next week, but there are hints that another wet system could drop down from the Pacific Northwest, and bring some impacts to our region on Tuesday night.

We'll be staying hot on Friday, but won't be as hot as the last few days. The potential for active weather returns Friday night into Saturday and much cooler temperatures are on the way for your weekend.
