TODAY'S FORECAST -

MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A SHOWER OR TWO! 43°F 6:30AM Hey hey Giovanni here. The bulk of the rain is to our east, and the trough responsible for all this exciting weather is slowly drifting east. Showers and snow showers mainly above 7000ft are possible today with a slight chance of scattered t'storms mainly to our north. Today's temperatures may reach the mid 60s with overnight lows in the upper 40s.

The next couple of days will actually warm up and clear out, but a couple of inside sliders will drop along the Sierra crest over the weekend bringing the Sierra a chance of showers and maybe a sprinkle or two to the foothills. We will likely only see cooler weather and partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies at times. This is not looking at all like another round of rain as the forecast models are being a bit bullish with the rain chances considering how much rain we just received. Much of Sunday and Monday look dry and warmer with a clearing trend leading into early next week as we finally begin to look like California spring weather again.

The long range forecast looks dry and warmer by early next week. No more rain or Sierra snow, only warmer spring weather! Have wonderful Wednesday
