TODAY'S FORECAST

SUNNY! 35°F 6:00AM Hey hey Giovanni here. A bit chilly this morning as clear skies and strong High pressure over NorCal brings us a crisp spring day. Today's temperatures will reach the low 60s with cool overnight lows in the mid 40s.

An inside slider will drop along the Sierra crest on Thursday bringing a chance of snow showers above 6000ft. We may only see increased cloudiness with a chance of sprinkles to our east. Friday and Saturday look dry and warmer with maybe a chance of showers on Sunday into Monday as another inside slider mainly brings the Sierra a chance of snow showers. I'm thinking the most we will see will be a few sprinkles with partly cloudy skies. Tuesday looks dry and sunny as High pressure begins to dominate the forecast.

The long range forecast is drying out with only slight chances of showers remaining. We will likely have wild swings in the weather over the coming weeks, but overall a drying and warming trend will ultimately win out. Have a wild Wednesday!
