Enjoy the last day of dry and mild weather today.

Because by tonight that rain will roll in across the valley and we'll see mountain snow - expect travel delays through Wednesday night.

High clouds are spreading across the North State today ahead of an offshore trough.

It's a bit cooler today just because of those cloudy skies, but we'll cool down even more as the front spreads across the area this evening.

We could even see some thunderstorms in some areas - and the most snow acorss the northern Sierra.

After midnigt tonight, we'll see snow levels dropping to around 5,500 feet Wednesday.

Total snow accumulations will be between 4 and 8 inches, with localized amounts up to 12 inches are possible.

Thunderstorms will be possible again Wednesday afternoon and early evening as the center of the storm moves in.

We'll get a break in the rain Thursday before another system moves through Friday and Friday night.

Rain and snow showers will likely linger over the foothills and the ridges Saturday with drier weather expected by Sunday morning.

There's a broad low pressure system sitting off the west coast which means it could start raining again to start the next work week, as early as Monday morning.
