TODAY'S FORECAST

CLOUDY AND WET TONIGHT! 57°F 10:00AM Hey hey Giovanni here. A weak system will bring us a chance of showers late tonight, but we will remain dry and breezy albeit mostly cloudy today. Today's temperatures may reach the mid 60s with cool overnight lows in the mid 40s.

Monday looks wet at times as a stronger system will drop along the Sierra Crest and the foothills. This spring storm will be with us for much of the day spreading precipitation from north to south. Sierra snow is expected above 6500ft with 3-6" of snow above 7000ft through Monday night. A clearing trend arrives Tuesday, but a few stray showers are possible Tuesday morning, but we are expected to dry out and becoming mostly sunny by Tuesday afternoon as High pressure dominates the west coast through the rest of the week. Spring will be in the air as we warm into the mid 70s by Thursday!

The long range forecast looks dramatically warmer as we head into the second half of April and into May! Have a super Sunday!
