TODAY'S FORECAST -

A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND SIERRA SNOW! 46°F 6:30AM Hey hey Giovanni here. A low departing to our south and a trough dropping into the Sierra and Great Basin will be enough to bring us mostly cloudy skies today and breezy conditions. This weather sandwich may also be enough to trigger a few showers locally and snow above 5000ft. Very little accumulation of any precipitation is expected. Today's temperatures may reach the low 60s with overnight lows in the mid 40s. We clear out and start to warm up again on Wednesday through Saturday, but by Sunday into Monday a few showers will be possible again as a weak Low is looking to drop along the Sierra Crest triggering showers locally.

The long range forecast still shows a good chance of inclement weather through mid May, but it's still too soon to tell if we will see any rain, or just a cooling trend. Have a totally awesome Tuesday!
