SHOWERS! 38°F 10:00 AM Hey hey Giovanni here. A weak system will keep us wet today as a steady northwest flow brings us showers and snow above 4000ft. Expect 2-6" of snow at Pass level. Expect today's daytime highs in the mid 40s with overnight lows in the mid 30s.

Two more storms arrive this week with the last being the coldest and strongest. The next one arrives on Tuesday evening bringing us rain with a chance of a wintry mix down to 2500ft, but no accumulation is expected below 3000ft.

The wettest and coldest storm we've seen all January is expected to arrive Wednesday night, bringing lots of rain and heavy snow to the Sierra. Snow levels may drop to 2500ft, bringing us a good possibility of seeing 1-3" of snow in GV/NC. The upper foothills will see more, with the Sierra receiving up to 2ft of snow. This won't be a huge storm, but the strongest we've seen since December. Prepare for bad drivers and long delays into the Sierra.

The long range forecast looks to dry out a bit next week, but there's also some flip flopping so there's that.
