DRY DAY! 39°F 7:30 AM Hey hey Giovanni here. A dry day is on tap as yesterday's slow moving storm exits the Sierra. Expect today's daytime highs in the upper 40s and overnight lows in the mid 30s.

This break in the weather won't last as another possibility of rain with snow showers as low as 3000ft will develop Tuesday evening into Christmas day as a cold, but weak and mostly dry storm impacts NorCal. Zero accumulation of snow is expected in NC /GV, with the upper foothill communities like Banner and Cascade Shores likely receiving a light dusting. This is considered a low impact storm as even the Sierra is only expected to receive a light dusting as this system is expected to be more of a coastal slider with the upper Low staying too far off the coast to really bring us a lot of moisture. The rest of the week looks to dry out with the slight possibility of showers on Sunday.

The long range forecast looks to dry out for the last week of the year and continuing dry into the first week of January.
