TODAY'S FORECAST

DRYING OUT AND WARMER! 39°F 6:00AM Hey hey Giovanni here. Cool start to the day again as all the rain and sow showers are now to our east. Building High pressure has put an end to all the wet and wild weather bringing us partly cloudy skies with afternoon fair weather cumulus developing later in the day. Today's temps may reach the low to mid 50s with overnight lows in the upper 30s.

This weekend will continue dry with warmer days and cool nights. A storm looks to arrive late in the day on Monday with snow levels above 7000ft as we shift to a warmer storm pattern. This won't be the wettest storm as we may receive 0.50" to 1" of rain with a continuing threat of rain through midweek as the potential for weaker follow up storms is possible,

The long range forecast wants to keep us wet off and on through the middle of mid April. The next major storm pattern looks to arrive next weekend as a strong Atmospheric River event makes a run for NorCal. This means we may see a couple of days of moderate to heavy rain with high snow levels. More on that soon. Have a fantastic Friday!
