TODAY'S FORECAST

RAIN WEDNESDAY NIGHT! 57°F 6:30AM Hey hey Giovanni here. The cooling trend becomes obvious today as an unseasonably deep trough approaches the NorCal coast setting up an early spring like storm pattern. No rain today, but it's going to get wet soon. Today's temperatures may reach the upper 60s with overnight lows in the upper 40s. Rain is expected to develop by Wednesday afternoon, becoming heavy at times overnight into Thursday morning. Even heavy wet snow will be possible above 6500ft. This trough will remain offshore pulling in a series of cold Lows through the weekend and into early next week keeping our weather unsettled with a chance of Sierra snow showers above 6000ft. Monday still looks potentially wet, but a clearing trend looks likely early next week. This may be the last chance for rain and Sierra snow. Enjoy what could be the last wet weather pattern of the season.

The long range forecast looks to dry out our rain chances by the middle of next week, but the Sierra may continue wet and stormy at times through the rest of May, Get ready for some rain and have a totally awesome Tuesday.
