You're going to want to keep that umbrella handy today, and to give yourself extra time to get to where you're going. Heavy rain and high elevation snow is making travel conditions hazardous for portions of Northern California this morning. On top of the heavy rain that is continuing to fall early today, we're also dealing with poor visibility in the valley. Snow levels will be slightly lower today, but are expected to remain above 5000'. Winds were strong last night, but have become slightly weaker early today and that has resulted in the Wind Advisory being lifted early for the valley. Winds will be up to 25mph out of the South through this afternoon, with potential for gusts up to 35mph. Temperatures are starting out in the high 40's to low 50's in the valley early today, with 30's to 30's in the mountains. High temperatures are projected to end up in the mid 50's to low 60's in the valley this afternoon, and in the low to mid 40's in the mountains later today. Periods of heavy rain and snow are expected to continue through your Wednesday, but should taper off overnight into Thursday.
There will be potential for some light pop up showers linger into early Thursday, but the widespread wet event should come to an end late tonight. High pressure will build into the West Coast and give us a short break from wet weather, but more showers will be possible Friday afternoon and night. There will be potential for more showers through your weekend and into the start of next week. Models have been going back and forth on the potential for rain this weekend. At the moment it does look more likely than not that we'll have some showers from Friday through Sunday. Temperatures will not change much over the next 7 days. Mid to high 50's are projected in the valley, and mountain areas will mostly end up in the 40's. More showers are likely next week.
